Kevin Eyster Eliminated in 3rd Place ($219,088)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante
Kevin Eyster - 3rd Place

Hand #137: Travis Rice raised to 450,000 from the button and it folded to Kevin Eyster who moved all in from the big blind for 2.25 million. Rice called and the hands were turned up.

Rice: {J-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Eyster: {A-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The two were flipping for Eyster's tournament life heading to the community cards. The flop came down {3-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs}, keeping Rice's jacks in the lead but giving Eyster a few additional outs to make a wheel. The {9-Clubs} dropped down on the turn, meaning Eyster needed to improve on the river in order to stay alive.

The river was the {7-Diamonds}, ensuring that Eyster would fall in third place for $219,088.
