Kevin Berthelsen Eliminated in 3rd Place ($47,691)

Chad_Holloway • Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante
Kevin Berthelsen

Kevin Berthelsen limped the button and Steve Wilkie raised to 420,000 from the small blind. Mark Collins folded the big, Berthelsen moved all in for a little over 1 million, and Wilkie called.

Kevin Berthelsen: {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
Steve Wilkie: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

It was a flip and Berthelsen was looking to hold to stay alive. Unfortunately for him, that proved easier said than done as the {9-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades} runout gave Wilkie a winning pair of aces.

"I guess it wasn't meant to be," Berthelsen said before heading to the payout desk to collect $47,691 for finishing in third place.
