Eric Blair Eliminated in 5th Place ($120,669)

Eric Blair - 5th Place

Hand #14: Andrew Graham raised to 150,000 under the gun and Eric Blair defended his big blind to see a {9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop. Blair checked and called a bet of 250,000 from Graham, which brought about the {8-Spades} turn. Blair checked, Graham moved all in, and Blair leaned back in his chair. He had 870,000 back, double checked his cards, and called off.

Blair: {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Graham: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

Blair had a kicker problem and was looking to simply chop the pot. The {3-Spades} river was no help and just like that he was sent out the door in fifth place.
