"C'mon now Bruce," said Preston Derden to the dealer when he had a portion of his tiny stack already committed in the big blind.

In the hand in question, Victor Ramdin opened it up with a raise from under the gun. Brock Parker then three-bet on his direct left and it was on Brian Meinders on the button. He opted to four-bet and Derden quickly tumbled in his last chips (a total of 20,000). Ramdin then got out of the way and Parker made the call.

Derden was on his feet and watched as the dealer spread out a {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs} board. On the flop Parker check-called a bet from Meinders and both players checked the turn. The river saw Parker lead and Meinders raise. Parker called and the three players turned their hands over.

Meinders: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Parker: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Derden: {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Derden paired his nine on the flop, but it wasn't strong enough for either Parker or Meinder's holdings. In the end, Meinders raked in the pot and Derden shook all the hands at the table and made his way out of the tournament in a gallant 6th place.
