Daniel Holmes Eliminated in 3rd Place ($15,006)

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Daniel Holmes - Third Place

Daniel Holmes shipped all in from the button for 289,000, and Shawn Schoreck made the call in the small blind. After about two minutes of thought, Kou Vang laid his big blind down.

Holmes: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Schoreck: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

The flop left both with hopeful positions: {7-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, giving Schoreck a straight draw and two overs while keeping Holmes' eights best for the moment. An {a-Clubs} turn cause Holmes to slide his chair back, and the {2-Hearts} river officially ended his tournament.

Vang, meanwhile, said he folded two sevens.
