Event 38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Jesse Wilke Eliminated in 18th Place ($21,689)

Jesse Wilke - 18th Place

The first elimination after our table redraw has occurred within just a few minutes. It all started when Jesse Wilke opened up the pot to 35,000. David Pham was in the small blind and he three bet to 80,000. Wilke then instantly went all in and Pham called just as quickly.

Pham's {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} was in good shape against Wilke's {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}, but when the {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop hit the felt, Wilke took the lead. However, the {8-Hearts} turn had other ideas, giving Pham the flush and by the time the meaningless {k-Spades} rolled off on the river, Wilke was making his way out the door in 18th place.
