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

Eddie Blumenthal Eliminated in 4th Place ($146,053)

Eddie Blumenthal - 4th place

Simon Charette was the first player to act and put out a standard raise of 100,000. Luis Rodriguez Cruz was next to act and three-bet to 230,000 from the button. Next up was Eddie Blumenthal who four-bet to 620,000 from the small blind. Artem Metalidi folded the big blind as fast as he could, and Charette moved all in. Cruz folded, and Blumenthal made the call and was at risk.

Charette: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Blumenthal: {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}

The board came {Q-Spades}{4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Blumenthal was eliminated when he failed to improve. Charette then took in probably the biggest pot of the night and sits just under 2,500,000.
