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

Hand #129: John Dolan Eliminated in 6th Place ($1,772,959)

John Dolan - 6th Place

Joseph Cheong has the button in Seat 2.

John Dolan moves his short stack all in from the small blind and Jonathan Duhamel makes the call in the big blind.

Dolan: {Q-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds}
Duhamel: {4-Clubs} {4-Diamonds}

A bewildered look comes across Dolan's face, and he seems thrilled to be racing with his meager queen-five. Let's see if he can connect with the board to stay alive.

The flop brings {J-Hearts} {7-Hearts} {6-Hearts}, and it takes an awkward moment of silence for everyone to realize that it didn't change anything. The {9-Hearts} on the turn, however, puts the possibility of a split pot into play as Dolan picks up nine more outs (16 total) to survive.

He can not. The {3-Clubs} lands on the river, and that's a swing and a miss for the at-risk player. John Dolan's Main Event has come to an end in 6th place, and he'll pick up almost a million extra dollars to add to 9th-place money on his way out the door.
