Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Joe McGowan Eliminated in 19th Place (€26,611)

Joe McGowan - 20th

"Yes," we heard Scott Seiver yell from Table 8, "I folded queens." We made our way over to discover that Joe McGowan was all in for approximately 315,000 with {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} against the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} of Phil Hellmuth. From what we could piece together, McGown had opened, Seiver flatted, Hellmuth three-bet, McGown moved in, Seiver folded, and Hellmuth snap-called.

Both McGowan and Hellmuth were on their feet to watch the board, which came out {4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. "Good game guys," McGowan said as he lost with the same hand Hellmuth used to win the 1989 WSOP Main Event and made his way to the payout desk in 19th place to collect €26,611.
