Jonathan Tamayo Eliminated In 4th Place ($84,516)


Aaron Steury looked to continue bullying his fellow players and raised to 80,000 from the small blind. Jonathan Tamayo made the call and the flop came {Q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Tamayo's last 70,000 chips went into the middle and we were off to a showdown.

Tamayo: {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}
Steury: {Q-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

Tamayo had flopped top pair but was trailing Steury's two-pair, queens and fives. The chip leader also held an open ended straight draw and Tamayo would need help on the turn or river. The {6-Clubs} on the turn only improved Steury's hand, giving him queens and sixes and Tamayo was down to his last chance, needing a nine, ten or ace to fall on the river.

River: {J-Diamonds}

With that, Jonathan Tamayo was eliminated in 4th place and he will take home $84,516 for his deep run.
