Derek Gregory Eliminated in 5th Place ($197,691)

Derek Gregory - 5th place

In what would be his last hand, Derek Gregory opened to 165,000 from the cutoff and was called by Dan Smith in the big blind.

The flop came {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Smith checked to Gregory, who c-bet for 225,000. Smith then check-raised all in and Gregory quickly called all in for his last 1.3 million.

Smith: {J-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Gregory: {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Gregory was ahead, but would need to fade plenty of outs to survive. The {K-Clubs} turn gave Smith an open-ended straight draw and the {A-Hearts} left Smith with a winning straight for the knockout.

Smith is up to 6.7 million.
