After more than an hour without much changing on the table, it all started changing quickly.
One of the (many, many) preflop shoves finally resulted in the elimination of one of the final five. Whereas usually the shove would garner folds around the table, this time it hit. The gentleman that took the brunt of it was Grant Ellis, who got his 1,080,000 chip in with pocket 7s.
Grant was called by Terence Caulcutt, who was holding .
The board was dealt , a good start for Terence who was searching for the flush. The next card was a (completing the flush) and the final was unnecessary.
Grant said goodbye, took the 5th place $3,980
The very next hand we saw another elimination. This time it was Vsevolod who left. He shoved preflop with Jacks, getting called by Terence’s J-Q. The board was dealt and that was it.
Vsevolod took 4th place and $5,180.
Incredibly, the next hand saw Terence eliminate another opponent. This time the victim was Sebastien Fortier.
This run of luck was even more impressive because only a few hands before Terence was the short stack. But by doubling up (almost) each hand, his stack progressively grew large enough to take on larger opponents each time. In this case, it was Terence holding the pocket jacks. He faced off against Sebastien’s .
The board was dealt , and that was the end of Sebastien’s night!
He earns a 3rd place finish and a healthy prize of $7,280.
Congratulations to all three players for outlast hundreds of opponents and taking home some substantial cash. Well done!
