Main Event

Raymond Weaver Eliminated in 3rd Place ($113,968)

Shamus • Level 33: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Raymond Weaver - 3rd Place

Raymond Weaver limped in from the small blind, John Bowman raised to 300,000 from the big blind, and Weaver pulled chips off of his stack to call, leaving himself a little over 2 million behind.

The flop came {K-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, and both players checked. The turn then brought the {7-Diamonds}. Weaver checked, Bowman bet 200,000, then Weaver check-raised to 600,000 and after pausing a beat Bowman called.

The river brought the {A-Clubs}. Weaver pushed out a bet of 300,000, and after sitting silently for about a half-minute Bowman declared he was all in. Weaver waited just a few seconds then said he was calling, saying "I have a king" as he turned over {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}.

Weaver had flopped top pair, but Bowman had turned the nuts as he held {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for the queen flush, and Weaver's impressive Main Event run came to an end in third place.

There will be a short break before heads-up play begins, at which point John Bowman will be starting with a better than 3-to-1 chip lead over Daniel Weinman.
