Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Nicholas Blumenthal Eliminated in 4th Place ($255,028)

[user80015] • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Nicholas Blumenthal - 4th Place

Maria Ho opened from under the gun to 200,000 only to have Nicholas Blumenthal move all in for 1,310,000 from the small blind. Ho made the call.

Blumenthal: {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Ho: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

With Blumenthal in the lead, the {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop saw Ho snatch the advantage after snagging top pair. The {Q-Diamonds} on the turn changed little, and when the {J-Spades} landed on the river, Blumenthal was sent to the rail in 4th place for a $255,028 payday as Ho moves to just under 4,000,000 in chips.
