Run It Up Reno

Event #36: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Mike Watson Eliminated in 6th Place ($50,774)

thkcduckworth • Level 6: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Mike Watson - 6th place

Hand #98: Simeon Naydenov opened to 50,000 only to have Mike Watson three-bet to 125,000 next to act. Naydenov moved all in and Watson immediately made the call for his 730,000-chip stack.

Watson: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Naydenov: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

With Watson in great shape to double, the {4-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{k-Clubs} flop kept him in the lead until the dealer delivered the pain-staking {9-Clubs} on the turn for Watson to be left drawing to just two outs.

Watson would be unable to strike gold on the river as the {J-Diamonds} rolled off to send him home in 6th place for a $50,774 payday.
