We arrive at the table on the turn with a board of A♦8♦7♦3♥ and a mound of chips in the middle. Queen checks from the blinds and Christopher Wells moves in for his last 80,000 from the cutoff. Queen snap calls and their hands are turned up.
Queen - K♦2♦
Wells - A♥Q♣
Wells's top pair is drawing dead against Queen's flush and the board completes with a meaningless 2♠. Wells is eliminated in 17th place for $508.
Dave Queen - 415,000
Christopher Wells - Eliminated
Earlier at the other of our two remaining tables, Patricia Bott was eliminated in 18th place and receives $508 for her performance.
Dave Queen limps in from under the gun for 16,000 and action folds to Rizzloe Jones in the hijack who raises to 40,000 straight. AJ Johnston folds his big blind and Queen calls.
The flop comes Q♦T♥2♠. Queen checks and Jones snap-shoves, having Queen covered. Queen goes into the tank for nearly a minute and reluctantly calls.
Queen - A♣T♣
Jones - A♠9♠
Queen's pair of tens is best and Jones will need running cards to come from behind. The 8♠ on the turn gives Jones a gutshot straight draw but it fails to complete with the 9♥ on the river.
Dave Queen - 260,000
Rizzloe Jones - 59,000
William Cole exited the tournament in 19th place and takes home $408 for his performance.
The next player out will receive $508. With 10 players left, we will again redraw for seats at the final table.
Our top stacks in the room:
Tim Sipe: 570,000
Rich Clark: 415,000
Julie Anna Cornelius: 410,000
AJ Johnston: 370,000
18 players are left.
Chad Bals was eliminated in 21st place for $408 in the closing minutes of Level 17.
Andre Allen was eliminated in the early going of Level 18. Action was folded to Allen on the button and he shoved for 160,000. Julie Anna Cornelius called from the big blind.
Allen held 7x7x but Cornelius woke up with AxAx. The board ran out clean for the aces and Allen was eliminated in 20th place for $408.
