Bryan Dillon - 5th Place

Hand #57: Jason Johnson pushed all in when first to act and Bryan Dillon shoved over the top from the button.

Dillon: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Johnson: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}

The board ran out {k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Johnson earned the double up. The two players had just one chip difference in stacks, and that one chip went back to Dillon. He was left with just enough to cover a single 5,000 ante.

Hand #58: Dillon was forced all in with only an ante to his name. Jordan Morgan raised to 95,000 and got the rest of the players out of the way.

Dillon: {7-Spades}{4-Hearts}
Morgan: {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

Dillon's hand was in need of some assistance, and things were looking grim by the turn when the board read {3-Clubs}{8-Spades}{a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades}. It picked up on the river, though. He found the {4-Spades} and quintupled up to 25,000.

Hand #59: Once again, Dillon was forced all in in the big blind. Johnson limped the small blind and Evan McNiff raised to 120,000 in the big blind. Johnson called and the flop was dealt {2-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. Johnson checked and McNiff continued for 135,000. Johnson made a raise to 300,000 and McNiff gave up. This left Johnson and Dillon to see the turn and river.

Johnson: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Dillon: {k-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

Dillon wasn't dead yet, but his fate was sealed when the last two cards were {10-Spades}{7-Hearts} to eliminate him from the tournament in fifth place for $107,800.
