Jesse Martin Eliminated in 4th Place ($68,322)

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Just a few moments ago we told you how Martin left himself crippled. Well, now it's all over for Martin as he makes his way out the door in 4th place.

Martin's last hand began when he raised from under the gun - enough to put him all in for 39,000. Prock was in the big blind and made the call. Martin was in front with his {q-Spades}{9-Clubs}, while Prock's {10-Clubs}{2-Spades} was still live.

The {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} board would see the pair of twos enough to send Prock the pot and eliminate Martin. With that, we are down to three-handed.

Prock called and a {j-Spades}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop was dealt. Martin led here and Prock called. The {7-Hearts} turn would see Martin lead and Prock raise it up. Martin called and a {9-Spades} hit the river. This time Martin checked and Prock fired out a bet. Martin tanked, before letting his hand go and leaving himself with less than one big bet.

Raymond Dehkharghani Eliminated in 5th Place ($51,344)

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6
Raymond Dehkharghani - 5th place
Raymond Dehkharghani - 5th place

Raymond Dehkharghani is the latest player to make his way out of this tournament. The end of Dehkharghani's night began when he opened the cutoff holding {a-Spades}{2-Spades}. Andrew Prock then three-bet out of the small blind and Dehkharghani quickly four-bet . Prock then capped it and Dehkharghani called and then had less than a big bet left.

The {j-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop would see Dehkharghani commit his last chips and the two players would turn their hands over. Dehkharghani 's {a-Spades}{2-Spades} was in need of some help against Prock's {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} and when the {k-Hearts} hit the turn, Dehkharghani would begin shaking everyone's hand. The meaningless {6-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing and Dehkharghani was out the door.
