Duster Ellis Eliminated in 12th Place ($3,817)

Chad_Holloway • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Duster Ellis

Action folded to Blair Hinkle on the button and he put his big stack to work by raising to 200,000 to put the pressure on the two short-stacked blinds. Duster Ellis called off for right around 125,000 from the small blind and Bernard Lee got out of the way in the big.

Duster Ellis: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Blair Hinkle: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Ellis had the better ace and he picked up the nut flush draw on the {2-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} flop. The {10-Diamonds} turn was of no consequence, but the {j-Hearts} river was as Hinkle paired up to win the pot.
