Aubrey Miles
Aubrey Miles
Aubrey Miles doubled up a few times to stave off elimination, but in the end she couldn't pull off the big comeback. She was all in on a flop of {A-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {8-Spades} with {J-Diamonds} {8-Hearts}, having made a pair of eights. The Playgirls also had eights, but a better kicker -- {Q-Hearts} {8-Hearts}. The board came {4-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} to give the Playgirls two pair and the win.

Miles earned PHP25,000 for her charity.

Priscilla Meirelles was forced all in from the blinds holding {7-Spades}{2-Spades} up against the 'final table killers' in the Playgirls with {4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}.

In a battle of the 'natural nines' it would be the Playgirls coming out on top, when the board fell {4-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{J-Spades} to see Meirelles eliminated in 4th place. Her charity earned PHP$15,000, for her deep run in today's Celebrity Charity Poker Challenge.

Maggie Wilson Eliminated in 5th Place

Maggie Wilson moved all in for her last 11,000 and was called by the Playgirls and Troy Montero.

Montero folded on the flop of {7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and the cards were tabled.

Wilson: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Playgirls: {5-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Drawing very slim, Wilson was unable to improve when the {4-Clubs} fell on the turn followed by the {10-Hearts} on the river to see Wilson eliminated in 5th place earning PHP$10,000 for her charity.
