Travis Pearson - 9th Place

No-Limit Hold'em

Steven Wolansky opened to 18,000 from the hijack and Eric Crain cut out a three-bet to 35,000 from the next seat over. It folded to Travis Pearson in the small blind and he announced a four-bet all in for 135,000. Wolansky tanked for about a minute before folding. Crain called and the hands were tabled:

Crain: {A-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Pearson: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

Pearson seized a tight grip on the hand when he flopped a set on the {5-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop.

"Jacks are live!" someone chimed from the other end of the table.

Just like that the {J-Hearts} struck the turn, giving Crain Broadway and the lead. The {3-Clubs} bricked out for Pearson on the river and Crain was able to score the elimination.

"I folded pocket jacks," said a stunned Wolansky after the hand. The rest of the table gasped at this admission.

With Pearson's elimination, we are officially at our final table!
