Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Mads Wissing Eliminated in 25th Place ($317,161)

Mads Wissing - 25th place

Mads Wissing is probably going to have nightmares tonight about jack-trey suited. He checked his big blind option after William Thorson, in the small blind, was the only player to limp into the pot pre-flop. Thorson checked the {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop, then moved all in after Wissing bet 175,000. Wissing called all in with top pair, {10-Spades}{8-Spades}. He saw that he was up against Thorson's bottom pair, {j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. The crowd let out a collective groan as the turn came a gut-punching {j-Hearts} to give Thorson two pair, jacks and treys. The river {8-Clubs} was salt in the wound for Wissing, giving him a useless two pair of his own.

Wissing has been eliminated. Thorson, meanwhile, is up to almost 7.0 million in chips.
