Phil Mader Eliminated in 10th Place ($9,275)

Chad_Holloway • Level 26: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Phil Mader - 10th

It didn't take long for the first elimination of the day, less than a half an hour in fact. It happened on a {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop when Phil Mader checked from the big blind and Sean Small bet 102,000. Mader moved all in for right around 300,000 and Small couldn't call fast enough.

Mader: {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Small: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Small was ahead with pocket kings, but Mader was drawing very much alive to an open-ended straight draw. The {J-Diamonds} turn gave him even more outs, but the {3-Clubs} river was not one of them. Mader exited in tenth place for $9,275 and the official final table was set.
