David Johnston Eliminated in 4th Place ($15,215)

David Johnston

David Johnston got his last few blinds in blind-versus-blind with {8-Spades}{3-Spades} against the {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} of Eli Kim.

"How do you have the eight-four there?" he wondered with a smile, seeing he was dominated when he expected to be live.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, and Johnston's chance for a chop dwindled massively. The {9-Spades} turn gave him outs to a flush, but the {7-Clubs} river was a blank.
