Dillon Scanlan Eliminated in 9th Place (£11,250)

zerofive • Level 37: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante

Jamie Whyte raised under the gun to 1,800,000, with action folding all the way round to Dillon Scanlan in the small blind. He was down to his last few bigs, and decided now was the time to rip, for around 6,000,000. Antonis Poulengeris quickly folded his big blind, and Whyte flicked in a chip to call.

It was a flip; Scanlan's {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} against Whyte's {k-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. The {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{j-Spades} gave Whyte a huge amount of outs! Any ace, king, queen, 10, or 9 would give Whyte the lead. The {10-Clubs} landed on the turn, counterfeiting Scanlon's pair. Scanlon needed a 7 and only a 7 to win, but couldn't find one on the river and, instead, the {4-Clubs} would spell the end of Scanlon's deep run.

Dillon Scanlon will take home the first five-figure score of the festival: £11,250 in cash, as well as a £2,200 UKPC seat.
