Paul Shelton Eliminated in 13th Place ($2,392)

BrandonTemple • Level 22: 15,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Paul Shelton

Paul Matzinger limped in from middle position, and Paul Shelton raised to 80,000 on the button. Shawn Stevenson called in the big blind, as did Matzinger.

Action checked to Shelton on a {7-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} flop, and he bet 65,000. Only Stevenson called.

Stevenson bet 225,000 on the {3-Diamonds} turn, and Shelton, who had just 130,000 behind, tanked for two minutes before calling.

Paul Shelton: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Shawn Stevenson: {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Shelton needed a king or diamond to survive, but the {8-Hearts} river ended his tournament, instead.
