Gregg Wilkinson Eliminated in 5th Place ($128,441)

Gregg Wilkinson - 5th place

Adria Balaguer opened the action with an under-the-gun raise to 100,000. Around in the big blind, Gregg Wilkinson three-bet shoved for just less than 800,000. Balaguer had just bluffed off a big chunk of his stack, so he barely had the shover covered by that point. He paused for just a bit to make sure, then called with a chance at the knockout.

Showdown
Balaguer: {A-Hearts} {J-Hearts}
Wilkinson: {10-Clubs} {10-Spades}

The {J-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} flop kept things interesting for the next two streets as Wilkinson flopped an open-ender. The turn was the blank {3-Clubs}, and he had one card to find an out. He could not, though. The {J-Clubs} was the last card off the deck, and Balaguer ends with trip jacks and the rest of Wilkinson's chips.

That's the end of Wilkinson's day, and he'll take home $128,441 for his work this weekend. That's not too bad for a $1,500 investment.
