Event 51: $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Monica Hinojosa Eliminated in 17th Place ($6,267); Erika Weinstein Eliminated in 18th Place ($6,267)

Monica Hinojosa - 17th place

Erika Weinstein found herself all in from middle position before the flop for her last 16,000 against three opponents — Yen Dang, Monica Hinojosa, and Peg Ledman.

The flop came {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}. Dang was first to act and checked, then Hinojosa bet 35,000, forcing a fold from Ledman. Dang responded with a reraise-shove, and Hinojosa called with her remaining chips.

Dang: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Hinojosa: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Weinstein: {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Weinstein had flopped trip eights and was ahead for the main pot, while Hinojosa had the current lead for the side pot with her aces. Meanwhile, Dang was looking for a non-pairing diamond to beat them both.

The turn was the {Q-Clubs}. "Deuce of clubs!" requested Weinstein for a river card. Alas for her — and for Hinojosa — fifth street brought the {3-Diamonds}, giving Dang the flush and a double-knockout.
