Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Andrew Lichtenberger Eliminated in 8th Place ($49,124)

Andrew Lichtenberger - 8th place

Andrew Lichtenberger started the action out from the button by raising to 33,000. Simon Charette folded the small blind and Atem Metalidi three-bet to 105,000. Lichtenberger then took his time before throwing out a handful of green chips for a four-bet to 215,000. Atem Metalidi then took off his sunglasses and five-bet to 430,000. Lichtenberger's response was to move all in for about 700,000. Metalidi made the call and cards were tabled.

Lichtenberger: {K-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Metalidi: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

Lichtenberger was in great shape, and looked to double up and become one of the top remaining contenders. A {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{Q-Spades} flop was exposed and Metalidi hit the world. Running kings were the only thing that could save the down on his luck Lichtenberger. A {2-Clubs} on the turn and a {4-Hearts} on the river sent Lichtenberger on his way.
