David Chiu Eliminated in 17th Place ($11,337)

Chad_Holloway • Level 17: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
David Chiu

Jan Sjavik raised from the cutoff and a short-stacked David Chiu, who won his fifth gold bracelet just last week, called off from the small blind. Brent Wheeler then called from the big blind and there was side action headed to the {8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{q-Spades} flop.

Wheeler checked, Sjavik bet and Wheeler woke up with a check-raise to 8,000. Sjavik made the called and then Wheeler check-called bets on both the {K-Diamonds} turn and {A-Spades} river. Sjavik rolled over the {k-Spades}{3-Spades} for the nuts, and Wheeler sent his cards to the muck.

"I even got there," Chiu said as he showed a pair of rivered aces with the {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Unfortunately for him, it was not good enough and he had to settle for 17th place.
