Charlie Montoya

Norm Tanner opened in the hijack and received calls from Cory Smith on the button and Charlie Montoya in the small blind. Montoya then jammed his remaining stack into the middle on a flop of {a-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and received a fold from Tanner and a call from Smith.

Charlie Montoya: {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Cory Smith: {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

Montoya's ace was dominated against that of Smith's. The turn {j-Spades} left him with just one shot at a three outer to stay alive, but it was pipped by the {9-Hearts} to complete the runout and spell the end of his tournament run in 16th place.
