William Thorson Eliminated in 4th Place (AUD $25,000)

Posted 2011-01-27 GMT+11

After Graeme Putt doubled up David Ewing, William Thorson finally gave up the last of his chips to Mike Sklover to bow out in fourth place.

Earlier, Ewing moved up to more than 130,000 in chips after getting the last of his money into the middle on a flop of {5-Spades}{9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} with {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{J-Spades}{8-Spades} against Putt's {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts}. The turn and river ran out {10-Spades}, {2-Hearts} and despite both players making two pair, Ewing's overpair was best.

Moments later, on a flop that read {Q-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, Thorson moved his last 30,000 in chips in with {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, but ran into Shklover's {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Neither the turn of the {A-Diamonds} or the river {2-Clubs} could save him, but Thorson can take comfort in the fact that he's now been credited with AUD $25,000.
