Event #15: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Ted Lawson Eliminated in 8th Place ($22,183)

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante
Ted Lawson - 8th Place

Ali Eslami entered the pot with a raise to 45,000 from under the gun only to have Ted Lawson move all in from the button for 165,000. Eslami made the call.

Eslami: {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Lawson: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

With Lawson in a race for his tournament survival, the {3-Spades}{10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop gave him no additional outs before the dealer dropped the {8-Hearts} on the turn.

Now needing one of six cards in the deck to remain in Event #15, the {2-Clubs} on the river wouldn't be one of those as he was forced to wave goodbye to the tournament in eighth place as Eslami moves to 680,000 in chips.
