Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Adam Geyer Eliminated in 3rd Place ($328,810)

• Nivel 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Adam Geyer - 3rd place

When Darryl Ronconi folded his button, Adam Geyer shoved all in for just less than a million chips. In the big blind, Antonin Teisseire quickly called, and his French contingent in the stands rose to their feet as they smelled a knockout.

Geyer: {K-Clubs} {7-Clubs}
Teisseire: {A-Diamonds} {9-Spades}

Geyer needed to improve to stay alive, but he would find no help from the dealer. The board ran {4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and that was that. The mighty king-axe betrays him, and Adam Geyer becomes our third-place finisher. It probably wasn't what he envisioned when he went to bed as the chip leader last night, but he was more-or-less fortunate to ladder up one spot after that crippling cooler early this afternoon. He'll be rewarded with $328,810.
