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

Martin Fitzmaurice Eliminated in 8th Place ($63,418)

Martin Fitzmaurice - 8th Place

Martin Fitzmaurice moved all in for 455,000 from early position and action folded around to William Thomson in the small blind who moved all in for 440,000 and the big blind folded.

Thomson: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Fitzmaurice: {A-Hearts}{9-}

The board came {4-Clubs}{5-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} giving Thomson the flush, but not the knock out due to Fitzmaurice holding 15,000 more chips.

The next hand saw Fitzmaurice get all in for his last few chips against Thompson again, but a chop pot was ruled after both players flipped over {Q-}{3-} and a {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{6-Hearts} board was spread.

The hand after that saw Fitzmaurice get all in again for the third time against William Stabler.

Stabler: {A-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Fitzmaurice: {10-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The board came {k-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Fitzmaurice was eliminated when his ten high couldn't compete with Stabler's three of a kind kings.
