Event #15: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Dajuan Whorley Eliminated in 3rd Place ($91,212)

• Nivel 24: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante
Dajuan Whorley - 3rd Place

Allen Kessler entered the pot from the button with a raise to 70,000 and Dajuan Whorley defended his big blind to see a {3-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop fall.

Whorley checked and Kessler fired out a continuation-bet of 80,000 only to have Whorley check-raise to 175,000. Kessler moved all in and Whorley made the call for roughly his 300,000-chip stack.

Whorley: {J-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Kessler: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}

With Whorley trailing, the {7-Hearts} on the turn saw him gain outs to a jack, ten or nine, but when the river landed the {5-Clubs}, Whorley was eliminated in third place for a $91,212 payday, leaving both Kessler and Brian Rast heads up.
