Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Lindgren Eliminated in 43rd Place

Erick Lindgren

A short-stacked Erick Lindgren moved all in from the hijack for around 640,000 and received a call from Steve Brecher in the big blind.

Showdown
Lindgren: {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}
Brecher: {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

It was a tough spot for Lindgren as his small pocket pair was dominated by that of Brecher. The {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop gave Lindgren some extra outs as any five would give him a straight, but the {6-Diamonds} turn wasn't what he needed. With one card to come, Lindgren's 2011 Main Event came down to needing either a four or five on the river.

Unfortunatley for Lindgren, and his fans the world over, the {2-Diamonds} bricked and he was eliminated in 43rd place.
