• Nivel 18: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante
Matt Hawrilenko - 16th place

Matt Hawrilenko's exit, was a tale of two hands.

Hawrilenko: {x-}{x-} / {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} / {x-}
Tang: {x-}{x-} / {10-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} / {x-}
Brown: {x-}{x-} / {5-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} FOLDED

Hawrilenko checked on fourth and then check-raised when Tang bet and Brown called but both called the raise. Hawrilenko then fired fifth with Tang calling and Brown folding, Tang called another bet on sixth street as well. On seventh, Hawrilenko check-called a bet but was very disappointed when Tang turned over {J-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} for trips to win the pot.

This left the former WSOP bracelet winner as the short stack and he was soon all in against Tang but couldn't make a pair with his board coming {K-}{J-Spades} / {10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-}{9-Spades} / {4-Spades} as Tang managed to make queens on a board of {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} / {K-Clubs}{8-}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} / {J-Clubs} - enough to win the pot.
