John "Hamburger!" Thrower Eliminated in 11th Place ($126,773)

zedmaster84 • Level 34: 50,000-100,000, 12,500 ante

John "Hamburger!" Thrower raised to 200,000 from the cutoff and was called by Jason Koon in the big blind. The flop brought {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Koon went for the check-raise from 157,500 to 493,500. Thrower moved all in for 1,679,420 total and Koon made the call.

John "Hamburger!" Thrower: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Jason Koon: {j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

Koon's top pair was in dire shape and things got worse on the {4-Spades} turn, as he now needed one of the two remaining eights in the deck. Sure enough, however, the {8-Clubs} appeared on the river and Thrower was eliminated in 11th place for $126,773.
