Chad Eveslage raised and Kate Hoang three-bet from one seat over, Eveslage called. On the flop, Eveslage checked and subsequently check-raised, which Hoang called. Eveslage only had 40,000 behind and moved all in as soon as the fell on the turn, Hoang called.
Eveslage needed a four, deuce or club to improve for the high hand, or a trey to chop it with the wheel. Instead, the blank on the river ended Eveslage's hour-long short stack grind in 6th place for $39,182.
"You have my admiration," Hoang said just before shaking hands with Eveslage and moved into contention for the lead with five players remaining.
