Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Brant Hale Eliminated in 7th Place($24,007)

Brent Hale

On the very next hand, action folded to Brant Hale on the button, and he raised pot to 70,000. Tommy Vedes was next in the small blind, and he put in a tower of orange T5,000 chips that amounted to a raise of 150,000. Mike Allis folded his big blind, and it was back to Hale. Hale said "well I didn't look so you have that going for you" as he slid the remainder of his stack into the middle.

Hale: {j-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Vedes: {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came down {6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, adding an inside straight draw to Hale's outs. The {a-Hearts} on the turn eliminated his pair outs, and Hale would need a three and a three only to survive. The river brought the {8-Diamonds}, and Hale hit the rail, while Vedes jumped back up to 620,000.
