Event 3 - $1,500 No Limit Holdem

Hand #16 - Thad Smith Eliminated in 7th Place ($73,661)

Hand #16 - Ciarin O'Leary has the button in seat 7, Smith moves all in from the cutoff for 290,000, and Crivello moves all in over the top from the small blind. The big blind folds, and Smith shows {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}, while Crivello has {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. It's a race situation, and Smith will need to improve to survive.

The flop comes {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, and Crivello flops a full house! Smith needs to hit running kings, running queens, running nines, or something like K-9 or Q-9 to stay alive.

The turn card is the {J-Hearts}, and Smith is drawing dead. The meaningless river card is the {7-Clubs}, and Craig Crivello wins the pot with his full house.

Thad Smith is eliminated in 7th place, earning $73,661. The next player eliminated will receive $94,122 for sixth place.
