Gary Ewald Eliminated in 15th Place ($5,627)

HillKerby • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante
Gary Ewald

Gary Ewald opened under the gun to 75,000 and action made its way around to Derek Mcmaster, who defended his big blind. The flop came {9-Spades}{3-Spades}{k-Clubs} and Mcmaster checked. Ewald made a continuation-bet of 100,000 and Mcmaster check-raised to 215,000. Ewald three-bet all in and Mcmaster called.

Gary Ewald: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Derek Mcmaster: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

Ewald was poised for his third straight double but Mcmaster spoiled his visions with the turn {j-Diamonds}, leaving Ewald in need of an ace, nine, or three to stay alive. The river {5-Hearts} was none of them and the dealer called for a payout as Ewald was eliminated in 15th place.
