Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Last Year's 12th-Place Finisher Eliminated

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Rep Porter

Action folded to a short-stacked Rep Porter, who finished 12th in this event last year for $573,204, in the cutoff and he moved all in for his last 103,000. Mats Karlsson called from the big blind and the cards were turned up.

Porter: {j-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Karlsson: {q-Spades}{3-Spades}

Porter was behind, but he was drawing to two live cards. The {6-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop didn't do much for him, and neither did the {3-Diamonds} turn. Porter needed to pair one of his cards, but that didn't happen as the {4-Diamonds} blanked on the river.
