Mike Watson Eliminated in 3rd Place ($462,320)

Mike Watson - 3rd Place

Mike Watson opened to 80,000 on the button with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}, Vanessa Selbst three-bet to 210,000 from the small blind with {k-Spades}{q-Spades}, and Vladimir Troyanovskiy folded {6-Hearts}{6-Spades} in the big blind. Watson called.

The flop fell {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}, Selbst led for 260,000, and Watson tanked for a minute or so before calling. The {q-Clubs} turned, and Selbst reached for chips, but eventually checked. Watson reached for yellow T25,000 chips, added a few blue T5,000 chips on top, then slid forward 320,000. Selbst called.

The {2-Spades} completed the board, giving Selbst a flush, and she checked, setting a trap for Watson. He walked right into it, moving all in for a pot-sized bet, and Selbst snapped it off.

Watson was eliminated in third place, and we are now heads up for the $25,000 High Roller championship!
