Stephen Falcon Eliminated in 13th Place ($27,000)

Stephen Falcon - Eliminated in 13th Place

Steven Merrifield opened to 45,000 from the hijack seat, Stephen Falcon three-bet to 150,000 and the action folded back to Merrifield who went into the tank. He eventually slid out a fourth bet worth 345,000, Falcon immediately moved all in, and Merrifield snapped it off.

"Shit," Falcon blurted.

Merrifield: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Falcon: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

There were nearly 3 million chips in the middle, making this the biggest pot of the tournament thus far. The dealer rapped the table, then delivered a flop of {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Hearts}, keeping Falcon alive and drawing to a king or running hearts.

The turn was paint, but the {q-Diamonds} did not help Falcon. The case ace - the {a-Spades} - fell on the river, eliminating Falcon from the tournament, and making Merrifield a commanding chip leader.
