Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Patrick Smith Eliminated in 4th Place ($176,299)

Patrick Smith - 4th Place

And then there were three. Patrick Smith was first to act preflop and he raised to 160,000. Cliff Goldkind called on the button and the two blinds got out of the way.

The flop brought an action-inducing {A-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{10-Spades} and the chips started flying. Smith checked, Goldkind fired 200,000, and Smith check-raised all-in for 1,220,000. After hearing Smith's total, Goldkind pushed in a call, and the cards were revealed.

Smith: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Goldkind: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

Cliff had the lead with two pair but it was far from over. Smith flopped a gutshot draw, and he picked up even more out when the {2-Spades} fell on the turn to give him a flush draw. But it wasn't meant to be for Smith as the {2-Hearts} came on the river and he exited in fourth place for more than $176,000.

Goldkind is running over this final table and is now sitting behind a mountain of chips.
