Bet on the NFL
Just one hand passed after Mercier hit the rail before the next elimination. Binger was that unfortunate player to exit in sixth place. Tehan raised to 125,000 and Binger reraised to 330,000. Tehan then grabbed a handful of chips and stuck out a reraise that committed Binger for all of his chips. Binger quickly made the call and tabled the 10 of spades, 10 of diamonds, up against the Ace of Clubs, Jack of Hearts for Tehan.
Tehan had faired extremely well in races up until this point and things wouldn’t change this time around. The board ran out 7 of Diamonds, 5 of Spades, 2 of Clubs, Ace of Hearts, 2 of Hearts, to give Tehan the win. Binger collected $114,000 for his finish.
Tehan did what the big stack is supposed to do after he eliminated Binger. He constantly raised and constantly put pressure on the shorter stacks at the table. When DeMaci wasn’t in the hand, Tehan was often times shoving all-in to put pressure on the much shorter Nguyen, Grimes and Henson. That’s what led to the next bust out.
DeMaci had folded and Tehan moved all-in to put pressure on the shorter stacks behind him. Nguyen made the call from the button and then Henson tank-called all-in from the big blind. Tehan had the chance to bust two players and with the way he had been running, it was almost inevitable that it was going to happen. Tehan held the worst of it with the King of Hearts, 5 of Diamonds. Nguyen had the Ace of Diamonds, Queen of Hearts, and Henson the Ace of Hearts Jack of Clubs. Tehan was plenty live though.
The board ran out 9 of Clubs, 9 of Diamonds, 4 of diamonds, king of spades, 2 of clubs, to give Tehan the best hand with two pair, kings and nines. A final count was conducted to see which player finished where. Henson had less chips than Nguyen so he finished in fifth place for $145,000 while Nguyen became the fourth-place finisher and will take home $195,000.
Just minutes later, Grimes got all of his money in with the 8 of spades, 7 of spades against the Jack of Hearts, 9 of Spades for Tehan. Grimes had done an amazing job to get that far and figured he had to make a stand at some point. He took the lead after the flop came down 10 of hearts, 7 of clubs, 3 of diamonds but lost it on the turn when the 9 of hearts fell. The river completed the board with the King of Diamonds and finished things off. Grimes took home a cool $250,000 for his finish in third place.
