Rep Porter Eliminated in 18th Place ($19,718)
Nivel 21 : 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Rep Porter opened for 20,000 from middle position and Justin Oliver defended his big blind. Both players checked the flop, and then Oliver led out for 30,000 on the turn. Porter responded by moving all in for right around 215,000 and Oliver called.
Porter had flopped the nuts, while Oliver held top pair with a flush draw. Porter was primed for the double if he could just dodge a diamond, but that proved easier said than done as the spiked on the river.
"Stupid play wins the pot," Oliver admitted after the hand. It was little consolation to Porter, who had to settle for 18th place and a $19,718 payday.
