Ben Yu - 4th Place

Ben Yu: {x-}{x-} / {k-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} / {x-}
Matt Grapenthien: {x-}{x-} / {3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} / {x-}

Grapenthien brought it in, Yu completed, and Grapenthien made it three bets. Yu called.

Yu led out on fourth street, Grapenthien raised, and Yu committed the remainder of his stack.

Yu: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Grapenthien: {j-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Both players had a pair, but Yu's cowboys were superior to Grapenthien's tres.

"My intention is to double up!" Yu shouted to his rail, prompting his friends to laugh.

Both players were dealt a deuce on fifth street, and sixth missed both players as well, but Grapenthien made two pair with the {9-Clubs} on seventh. Yu revealed a meaningless {10-Clubs}, and was eliminated.

Yu said his goodbyes to the table and wished them luck, then once again turned to his rail.

"See!" he shouted. "Choice Center is a scam! It doesn't work!"
