Joe Ford- 4th Place

Joe Ford started the action with a raise, and Calen McNeil called from the big blind. The flop came {q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{7-Spades}, and both players quickly checked. The turn brought the {5-Hearts}, and McNeil fired out. Ford made the call, and the same happened when the {a-Diamonds} hit the river. McNeil showed {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{j-Hearts} for a straight, and despite the river bringing in a low, Ford didn't have one, as he mucked his hand.

Shortly after, Can Kim Hua and Ford got in a preflop raising war that saw all of Ford's chips get in the middle.

Hua: {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Ford: {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The board ran down {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{k-Hearts}, and amazingly, Hua lowly pair of fives was good enough to score the knockout, and get us to three handed play.
