Event 29: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Hoyt Corkins Eliminated in 4th Place ($199,023)

Hoyt Corkins

Action folded to Hoyt Corkins in the small blind and he moved all in for 1.4 million. Bob Phelps took his time squeezing out his cards in the big blind before making the call and putting the two-time bracelet winner at risk.

Corkins: {A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}
Phelps: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Corkins was in rough shape and needed some help, but the {10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop was anything but; in fact, it left Horkins in need of either runner-runner hearts to win the pot or runner straight cards to chop.

The {Q-Clubs} turn put an end to Corkins' shot at a third bracelet, and he shook hands with the table as the dealer put out the meaningless {7-Hearts} on the river. Corkins, who earned $199,023 for his fourth-place finish, exited the stage to a nice round of applause.
