Event #28: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Joshua Evans Eliminated in 2nd Place ($372,498)

Joshua Evans - Eliminated in 2nd Place

Joshua Evans had the button and raised to 125,000, Andy Frankenberger called, and the flop fell {5-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. Frankenberger checked, Evans fired 180,000, and Frankenberger check-raised to 600,000. Evans moved all in for nearly 2.5 million, and Frankenberger made the call.

Frankenberger: {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Evans: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Evans needed a ten or running diamonds to survive, and his hopes for a flush were dashed when the {3-Hearts} fell on the turn. Only a ten could save him now, but it wasn't to be as the {2-Clubs} bricked on the river.

Evans has had a great year thus far, and despite finishing runner-up, he still walks home with a whopping $372,498.
