Shannon Eastin Eliminated in 17th Place

Shannon Eastin

Phil Hellmuth raised to 55,000 and Ut Nguyen moved all in for close to 200,000 from the cutoff. Shannon Eastin called all in from the button for 117,000. Hellmuth stood up, in typical "Poker Brat" fashion and lectured the other players for a few minutes explaining how he's a great player and why he's going to fold his hand. He then folded {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} face-up. Nguyen flipped over the {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs} while Eastin tabled the {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.

Hellmuth folded the best hand preflop and it would only have improved from there. The flop was {J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Hellmuth squirmed in agony.

"I would have flopped a set and busted you both!" he said.

The turn was the {K-Spades} and the river was the {6-Hearts}. Nguyen won the pot as Eastin headed to the rail in 17th place.
