Mike Watson - 10th Place

After doubling up through Eli Elezra not long ago, Mike Watson lost a couple of hands in quick succession, including one to Brian Brubaker, to find himself back down to less than 30,000.

Then a hand arose in which Brubaker raised from under the gun and it folded back around to Mike Watson in the big blind who called. Watston drew three and Brubaker two, then Watson check-called Brubaker's bet, leaving himself but a few orange (1,000 chips) behind. Watson then took two and Brubaker one, and again Watson check-called, this time putting himself all in.

On the third draw both players took one. Brubaker picked up a {K-} to go with his {8-}{6-}{4-}{2-}. But Watson had {5-}{4-}{3-}{2-} and drew another {5-} to be eliminated.
