• Level 18: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante
Matthew Gallin

Matthew Gallin has just been knocked out and that means the tournament is down to two tables of six. First Gallin raised from the cutoff and Samuel Golbuff three-bet from the small blind. Gallin called and the flop brought out {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades}.

Golbuff bet and Gallin called, which put the {6-Diamonds} out on the turn. Gallin called another bet and the river was the {4-Hearts}. This time Gallin folded when Golbuff bet again, which made him drop down to just 11,500.

A few hands later Jeff Thompson raised from the hijack and Gallin called all in from the big blind for 11,500.

Thompson: {Q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Gallin: {J-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Gallin hit the rail in 13th place.
