Event #6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Neil Channing Eliminated in 2nd Place ($273,153); Joshua Tieman Wins!

Neil Channing eliminated in 2nd.

Neil Channing was short throughout the final table, but he parlayed the aggressive play from others with his own mastery of the game to reach a heads up match with Joshua Tieman.

Channing was unable to overcome the near 7:1 chip advantage though, and after about a dozen hands of heads up we have a champion.

Tieman opened to 80,000 with the button and Channing moved all-in for 716,000. Tieman took his time, patient as always, riffling chips with his hand. Finally he called and and the hands were tabled:

Tieman: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Channing: {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}

The dealer wrapped the table and flopped {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. No help for Channing.

The {10-Diamonds} on the turn paired the board, keeping the door cracked open a bit.

It slam shut with the {Q-Hearts} on the river.

The English professional was so close to his first WSOP bracelet, but he will have to settle for second place and $273,153.

Marvelous effort Mr. Channing!
