Jonathan Gray Eliminated in 3rd Place ($534,505)

Jonathan Gray - 3rd Place

Hand #187: After Bennington opened for 800,000, Chen called in the small blind, and Gray re-shoved for approximately 5.5 million. Bennington got out of the way, and Chen made the call with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}, but he was dominated by the {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} tabled by Gray.

The five board cards would decide each man's destiny, and when the flop fell {K-Clubs}{q-Spades}{8-Clubs}, fate was in Chen's corner. His supporters in the stands exploded in excitement, but their hoots and hollers were quieted at the sight of the {5-Clubs}, as Gray picked up a club flush draw to improve his chances. Both players craned their necks to watch the dealer burn and turn the decisive last card.

River: {2-Spades}

The black card made everybody in the room catch their breath, but the spade was a blank for Gray and he was eliminated courtesy of a bad beat.
