Ashly Butler

Vladimir Shchmelev limped in on the button, then from the big blind Ashly Butler raised to 140,000. Shchmelev called and the two took a flop.

On the {5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop, Butler potted, which led to an all in from Shchmelev that Butler quickly called.

"Do you have seven-eight?" Butler asked. "I have aces."

Shchmelev did have seven, eight, and he showed it.

Shchmelev: {A-Spades}{2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Butler: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

It was grim for Butler but he could still catch winners to win the pot. Unfortunately for him, the {4-Clubs} and the {10-Spades} were not those runners and he was eliminated from the tournament in third place.
