Event 42 - $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em World Championship

Marc Fluss Eliminated in 3rd Place ($156,424)

Marc Fluss - 3rd Place
The button is with Dale Eberle for the first hand after the break. Eberle folded and Dan Lacourse completed from the small blind. Marc Fluss checked his option from the big blind.

They took a flop of {6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Lacourse led with a bet of 160,000. Fluss then moved all in over the top for an additional 665,000 chips. Lacourse stood and thought for a few moments before announcing a call.

Lacourse: {Q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}
Fluss: {6-Spades}{10-Spades}

Fluss held top pair and the lead as Lacourse showed just a straight draw. The turn blanked the {8-Spades} but the {2-Clubs} fell on the river. Fluss’ gallery cheered thinking that their man had won, but Lacourse defiantly yelled “straight!” to take down the pot and eliminate Fluss in third place for $156,424.
