Matt "OLD TIME GIN" Stone Eliminated in 5th Place ($47,481)

tayke2 • Level 34: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Steve "Mr. Tim Caum" O'Dwyer raised under the gun to 400,000, and Joao "INeedMassari" Simao flatted. Next to act, Matt "OLD TIME GIN" Stone would move all in for his final 4,522,069. O'Dwyer would fold, but Simao would call to put over half his stack at risk.

Matt "OLD TIME GIN" Stone: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Joao "INeedMassari" Simao: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}

Stone was in great shape to more than double up, but the flop of {7-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} suddenly gave Simao a world of outs. The {9-Clubs} on the turn wasn't one of them, but the {5-Hearts} on the river certainly was.

Stone will take home nearly $48,000 after the tough beat, while Simao is firmly locked into second after that hand with over 14 million.
