Tristan Wade Eliminated in 4th Place ($292,866)

[user153638] • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Tristan Wade (4th Place- $292,866)
Tristan Wade (4th Place- $292,866)

Action folded to Tristan Wade in the small blind and he raised to 155,000, which prompted Chris Moorman, who was in the big blind, to ask how much his opponent had behind. Wade had about 1.3 back, which inspired Moorman to three-bet to 335,000. Wade responded by moving all in and Moorman made the call.

Wade: {A-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Moorman: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

Wade was at risk with the inferior hand. The {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop gave both a pair of aces, but Moorman's jack kicker was ahead. The {8-Spades} on the turn changed nothing, leaving Wade in need of either a nine on the river to win, or a seven or eight to chop. The {Q-Clubs} that appeared was not what Wade was looking for. He was eliminated from the tournament in fourth place while Moorman chipped up to 4.5 million.

[user101598] • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

The river was the {5-Clubs}, and Moorman led for the first time, firing 125,000. Ebanks folded, and Moorman won the pot.
