Gabriel Morin - Eliminated in 4th Place

Gabriel Morin open-shoved for his 510,000 chips on the button, and his roomate Marc McLaughlin called in the big blind.

Morin: {q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
McLaughlin: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

"Sorry," Morin joked, insinuating that he was going to suck out on his good friend and roommate.

The dealer rapped the table, and the flop fell {2-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. Both players sat silently, awaiting the turn, which was the {5-Diamonds}.

There was a beat.

The dealer rapped the table on more time, and dealt the river; the {6-Clubs}.

The two friends shared a heart-fealt handshake, as the pro-Montreal rail offered Morin praise. Even 2010 Main Event Champion Jonathan Duhamel shouted to Morin from the rafters behind us, congratulating him on his deep finish and his $211,353 payday.
