Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Chris Johnson Eliminated in 31st Place ($230,487)

[user80015] • Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Chris Johnson - 31st place

Chris Johnson open-shoved all in for his last 1,745,000 and Dan Smith moved all in from the button to force the blinds out.

Johnson: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Smith: {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

With Johnson needing to fade against Smith to stay alive, the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{9-Spades} flop saw a further three outs added to Smith's list, and when the {A-Spades} fell on the turn, it would be Johnson now needing to spike to remain in the Main Event.

Unfortunately for the local Las Vegan, the river landed the {9-Diamonds} to see him sent to the rail in 31st place for a $230,487 payday as Smith climbed to nearly 11 million in chips.
