Michael Thorpe Eliminated in 15th Place ($31,809)

[user253757] • Level 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Michael Thorpe - 15th Place

After losing a big pot when his {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts} failed to catch up to Jack Ward's {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}, Michael Thorpe open-shoved for his last 195,000 or so holding the {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

He was happy to find that his cards were live against the {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} tabled by Randolph Spain, but the final board of {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{4-Hearts} brought him no help, and he was shaking hands by the turn.

Spain moved above the million chip milestone, while Thorpe was left to accept heartfelt "good game" congratulations from each and every one of his former tablemates.
