John Hesp

Hand #135: John Hesp raised all-in for 11,950,000 from the cutoff and Benjamin Pollak moved all-in over the top from the small blind. Ott folded his big blind and the cards were tabled for the remaining two players.

Hesp: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Pollak: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

The flop came {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}, giving Hesp a straight draw to go with his two live cards. The {4-Clubs} on the turn was no help and the {4-Hearts} on the river ended Hesp's tournament. Pollak won the hand with ace-high and Hesp was eliminated in fourth place.

The remaining three players are guaranteed $3,500,000 when they return on Saturday, July 22 at 5:30 p.m. local time.

Here is what Hesp had to say after his journey ended.
