Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Carlos Mortensen Eliminated in 17th Place ($33,540)

[user80015] • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Carlos Mortensen - 17th Place

Joseph Kuether opened to 52,000 from the hi-jack only to have Jesse Channi three-bet to 115,000 from the cutoff. With the action on Carlos Mortensen, he moved all in for roughly 300,000 to force a fold from Kuether but a call from Channi.

Mortensen: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Channi: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}

There would be a slight sweat on the turn for Mortensen, but the final board of {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Spades}{Q-Spades}{8-Diamonds} would ensure Mortensen would exit in 17th place for a $33,540 payday.
