Ben Farrell Eliminated in 3rd Place ($239,789)

Chad_Holloway • Level 33: 150,000-300,000, 150,000 ante
Ben Farrell

Ben Farrell moved his last 2.5 million all in from the small blind and Michael Dyer wasted little time in calling him from the big.

Ben Farrell: {q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Michael Dyer: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

The {7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{a-Spades} flop gave Dyer a massive lead and Farrell was left drawing dead after the {j-Spades} paired the board on the turn. The meaningless {9-Hearts} was run out on the river and Farrell exited in third place for $239,789.

It was a final six-figure score for Farrell in 2019. Coming into the tournament he was already enjoying a career year in which he'd earned $663,363 in live tournaments. That included a pair of six-figure scores here in Vegas over the summer when he won the WPT500 ARIA for $155,000 and a couple of weeks later took down the Planet Hollywood Goliath Phamous Series Main Event for $162,400.
