Event #6: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Meehan's Short Stack Finally Falls

• Nivel 13: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Jim Meehan Eliminated Close to Bubble

Jim Meehan has been nursing a short stack for a majority of this tournament and it seemed to be a strategy that was working for him. Every time we checked up on his stack he was never sitting on much, but he was still alive in the tournament and happy to be here. However, on the eve of making the money, the following hand occurred:

We caught up to see Meehan get it all in preflop against Darin Thomas.

Meehan: {A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Thomas: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

The board ran out dry for Meehan, coming up {3-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}{J-Hearts}. Meehan gathered his cowboy hat and unlit cigarette and took to the rail, unable to capture his 20th WSOP cash.
