Mark Herm Eliminated in 3rd Place ($126,882)

Mark Herm - 3rd Place

Mark Herm was on the ropes after losing a few big pots in short order, and he open-shoved for his last 400,000 holding the button.

Mike Watson called with {k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and found himself in great shape against Herm's {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}, but the latter was drawing to two live cards.

The flop came {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades} to gift Herm a gutshot straight draw to the nine. But the turn ({4-Clubs}) and river ({4-Hearts}) missed his hand entirely. Herm pocketed $126,882 for his efforts, while Watson secured his seat in the final heads-up match against Jared Jaffee.

The two will square off with a bracelet on the line at 8 p.m. local time, so check back then to find out who takes down their first taste of 2014 WSOP gold and glory.
