Dan Smith Eliminated in 17th Place (€3,752)

Dan Smith - 17th Place

From the button, Dan Shak raised to 3,000. Dan Smith potted the action from the small blind to 10,200, and action then folded back to Shak. He reraised to put Smith all in, and Smith called off for a total of about 27,000.

Shak: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Smith: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}

The flop came down {K-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Spades} and Smith took the lead with two pair, kings and fours. Shak held a flush draw that was very much live.

On the turn, Shak nailed his flush when the {5-Spades} hit. Now Smith needed to make a full house in order to stay alive and double up.

The {10-Clubs} landed on the river, and it wasn't the card Smith needed. Shak had him well covered, which spelled the end of Smith's tournament in 17th place. He earned €3,752 for his finish.

Shak improved his stack to 116,000 in chips and will be looking to make his second World Series of Poker final table. It would be his first on European soil, but come in a form of the game where he's made his other two final tables: Omaha.

In 2005, Shak took ninth in the $5,000 Omaha Hi/Lo event for $21,055. In 2010, he nearly snatched his first gold bracelet, but fell just short when he placed second in the $5,000 Pot-Limit Hi/Lo event for $202,142.
