Rodger Johnson Eliminated in 12th Place ($82,205)
Level 28 : 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Michael Bennington stands out as one of the older competitors left in the field, but he recently crippled Rodger Johnson, showing that he still has some spring in his step.
Playing from under the gun, Bennington shoved all-in for 1.49 million, and Johnson returned the favor with an all-in move of his own.
The two tabled their hands, and Johnson's put him ahead of Bennington's .
With the arrival of a jack on the flop, Bennington took the lead, and blanks on the turn and river left Johnson's big slick as the losing hand.
This loss crippled Johnson, and soon after he was dismissed by Upehska Desilva, but he will collect $82,205 for his deep run here tonight.
