Gregg Wilkerson Eliminated in Ninth Place ($14,715)
Steve Chanthabouasy raised to 30,000 from middle position and was called by Gregg Wilkerson on the button and JJ Liu from the big blind. The flop was QJ9 and Chanthabouasy bet 37,000 after Liu checked and Wilkerson moved all-in for 102,000 more.
After Liu folded, Chanthabouasy went into the tank for nearly five minutes before making the call. Chanthabouasy was not happy with what he saw when Wilkerson showed the AA and he held the AQ.
The turn was the 4, giving Chanthabouasy a flush draw along with his top pair. The river was the K, completing the flush and sending Wilkerson home in ninth place with a bad beat he won’t soon forget.
