Event #39: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout

Winner: Shaffer Sends Hohn Packing

Brett Shaffer wins

Brett Shaffer limped in on the button and Steve Hohn shoved for just under 200,000. Shaffer rolled his eyes and sat back in his chair, visibly upset with the situation. Hohn had shoved preflop almost a dozen times already, and finally Shaffer made the call.

Shaffer: {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Hohn: {4-Clubs}{2-Spades} (oops)

The {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop was actually fairly good for Hohn because it brought chop outs. The turn brought the {9-Clubs} and he needed either a seven or a nine to chop the pot. It wasn't to be though as the {j-Spades} rivered eliminating him from the tournament.

After a very long heads up battle, Shaffer has clinched a seat in the final 14.
