Event #6: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Clayton Newman Eliminated in 20th Place ($6,096)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Clayton Newman raised from early position and was three-bet all in by Matthew Elsby. The cards were turned over and we were five cards away from another player's fate.

Newman: {A-}{J-}
Elsby: {A-Spades}{2-Clubs}

The flop was safe for Newman, falling {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, and the turn was no problem either when the {4-Spades} came. However, the dreaded deuce fell in the form of the {2-Hearts}, knocking Newman out of the tournament.

All Newman could say when he looked at the board was "Standard.". Newman will receive $6,096 in prize money.

Also- Jeremy Heartberg was eliminated in 21st place. He got his stack in with {A-}{Q-} against his opponent's {3-}{3-} and failed to improve.
