Event 16: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Gordon Vayo Eliminated in 4th Place($121,262)

Gorden Vayo

Seriously, who's writing this?! We have now lost our third player in about six hands. On the first hand of the new level, Ramey Shaio raised under the gun to 65,000. Mark Radoja three bet to 125,000, and it was on Gordon Vayo. He shoved all in for about 500,000, and Shaio folded. Radoja snap called, and the cards were flipped.

Radoja: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Vayo: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

"You have two suits!" Vayo astutely pointed out, as Radoja's ace of diamonds trumped Vayo's king. The flop ran out all spades, {2-Spades}{10-Spades}{j-Spades}. Radoja shot out of his chair in excitment, while Vayo had a disgusted look on his face. Radoja was now freerolling on the knockout, but he missed it on the turn, the {6-Hearts}. However, the {3-Spades} hit the river, and Radoja gave a huge fist pump as he scored the unlikely knock out.

Vayo will leave with a bitter taste in his mouth, but the $121,262 will likely soothe his pains a bit. And just like that, we are down to three.
