Matt Hawrilenko Eliminated in 3rd Place ($124,837)

• Level 24
Matt Hawrilenko - 3rd Place

Matt Hawrilenko was short when he doubled up through Matt Matros, but then he gave back those chips one hand later. Down to his last four bets, he got it all in, again against Matros, on a {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop.

Hawrilenko: {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} - top two pair
Matros: {k-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} - flush draw

The {5-Diamonds} on the turn put Matros in the lead and meant Hawrilenko needed to catch a queen or a jack on the river. Instead it was the {3-Hearts}, and Hawrilenko was eliminated in third place by his good friend. This is Hawrilenko's fourth cash of the series and leaves him just short of a second bracelet. He left his chips to Matros, who now has the chip lead in pursuit of his own second bracelet.

Alway even-keeled, Hawrilenko is taking a quick break (a phone call to his wife and some frozen yogurt) and then jumping straight into the $50k Players' Championship.
