Event 5: Ben Thompson Eliminated in 11th Place ($847)

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 23: 10,000/20,000/3,000


Ben Thompson moved all in from the cutoff for 285,000 and got snap-called by Amaury Lopez on the button.

Thompson stood up and began to collect his belongings as he tabled 8d8s and was way ahead of Lopez’s Ac4c.

“You called so fast,” said another player at the table.

“Yea, well, if I think about it, I fold,” replied Lopez.

The board ran out 9d6d4s6sAh and Lopez rivered an ace to eliminate Thompson and have the clear cut chip lead with roughly 2,500,000 and almost half the chips in play as the two tables combine to the final table.
