John Shipley- 3rd Place

Sami Kelopuro opened to 200,000 on the button, Ben Lamb folded from the small blind, and John Shipley pushed his entire stack forward from the big blind. The bet was too much however - he was only allowed to raise to 650,000 - but Kelopuro instantly re-potted, and Shipley called.

Kelopuro: {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Shipley: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The dealer fanned {q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, giving Kelopuro a leading pair of queens. Shipley needed help, and the {2-Spades} on the turn only made things worse - it gave Kelopuro a redraw to a flush, taking away outs from Shipley.

The {7-Clubs} bricked on the river, eliminating Shipley from the tournament in 3rd place. He stood up to shake his opponent's hands, and is off to the cage to collect some cash - $369,575 to be exact.
