Darren Mapley Eliminated in 4th Place (£7,480)

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Darren Mapley - 4th place

Exactly one orbit after the previous raise to 175,000, Darren Mapley did the exact same and again Christopher Gordon moved all in from one seat over. Laurence Essa and Jesus Gracia folded their cards and Mapley called for almost even in chips:

Mapley: {A-Hearts} {6-Diamonds}
Gordon: {K-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}

The board ran out {J-Clubs} {K-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {6-Spades} and Gordon doubled up for 1,610,000 chips, leaving Mapley with 75,000 chips behind and in the big blind the very next hand. Gracia called from the small blind and Mapley had the nut low hand {3-Diamonds} {2-Clubs}. Gracia's {Q-Clubs} {7-Clubs} stayed ahead despite some sweat for a miracle on a board of {4-Clubs} {9-Spades} {9-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {10-Spades} and the field was reduced to the last three players.
