Johnson Phanyaseng started the day 3rd in chips, but he has been eliminated in 8th position from the final table of the WPTDeepStacks. He lost a substantial portion of his starting stack just a few hands earlier when he called Karim’s 3b all in holding and lost to Karim’s – he was left with just about 1M in chips.
The end of his journey in the tournament came when he got his final 956K in holding . A third player got out of the way, but Daniel Le found the call holding . Daniel’s 7s held on the board and that was the end of Johnson’s tournament.
