Marcus Carter

Marcus Carter opened to 150,000 from the button and Michael Phillips defended his big blind to see the Jc7d5s flop. Phillips checked, Carter moved all in for about 1,100,000 and Phillips insta-snapped his call.

Phillips: QhJs
Carter: TdTc

Carter was ahead preflop but Phillips paired his jack to take the lead. Carter turned a gutshot straight with the 8s but blanked the Ah river to exit.

On the hand after Brett Bader was eliminated, Tampa legend James Calderaro was eliminated in 12th place.

Michael Phillips – 5,200,000 (104 bb)
Marcus Carter – Eliminated in 11th Place ($16,270)
James Calderaro – Eliminated in 12th Place ($16,270)
