Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Tore Lukashaugen Eliminated in 5th Place ($141,125)

Shamus • Nivel 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Tore Lukashaugen - 5th place

The table folded around to Justin Filtz on the button. "Seventy," he said, pushing out a raise to 70,000. Matt Jarvis folded from the small blind, then Tore Lukashaugen announced he was reraising all in from the big blind. Lukashaugen set out two columns of chips, totaling about 530,000. Filtz quickly called, turning over {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}. Lukashaugen showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop came {2-Spades}{A-Spades}{3-Hearts}, pairing Filtz and leaving Lukashaugen searching for the case queen or some other, similarly unlikely good fortune of the runner-runner variety. But the turn was the {10-Diamonds} and the river the {9-Clubs}, and Lukashaugen is out in fifth.

Filtz now has about 3.3 million and is vying closely with Robert Merulla for the chip lead.
