David Nicholson Eliminated in 9th Place ($38,625)

David Nicholson - 9th place

Hand #13: Nicolas Fierro opened to 50,000 from under the gun and Jared Hamby made the call from the cutoff to see a {4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop fall.

Fierro checked and Hamby bet out 62,000 which prompted a fold from Fierro.

Hand #14: Joao Dorneles Neto made it 55,000 and Matt Berkey made the call before David Nicholson moved all in for 203,000 from the button.

Neto mucked but Berkey made the call as the cards were placed on their backs.

Berkey: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Nicholson: {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

The flop fell {4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds} to keep Berkey in the lead, and when the {9-Spades} landed on the turn Nicholson would need to spike to stay alive.

Unfortunately for the WSOP Circuit regular, the {4-Diamonds} landed on the river to end his tournament in 9th place for a $38,625 payday.
