Erick Wright Eliminated in 18th Place ($4,012)

HillKerby • Level 20: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Erick Wright

Erick Wright shoved all in for 145,000 from middle position and action folded around to Saad Ghanem, who asked for confirmation of the amount before announcing a call.

Erick Wright: {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Saad Ghanem: {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Wright was in need of improving and was unable to do so on the flop {7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. The turn {a-Diamonds} took away his six outs but provided eight new ones for him to sweat. He would not get there, however, as the river came {10-Hearts} to leave him with ace-king high to Ghanem's top two pair to result in Wright departing the tournament in 18th place.
