Beverly Cheney Eliminated in 9th Place ($11,383)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 26: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Beverly Cheney moved her short stack all in from middle position and had Rex Clinkscales three-bet ship his stack all in over the top. The blinds folded and the cards were shown.

Clinkscales: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Cheney: {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Cheney was absolutely crushed but found a glint of hope on the {2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop.

"It's never easy," someone chimed in from the crowd.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds} and Cheney was looking for one more club on the river to stay alive. It was not meant to be, however, as the {k-Diamonds} hit the felt and she became the first casualty of our final table. She will collect $11,383 in prize money.
