Howard Busted by Mortensen

• Level 22: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Michael Howard had been shoving to increase his stack plenty of times in the past few orbits, but ran out of luck with his last bid to double up. Howard was all in and at risk with {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} but he was flipping against {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} of Morten Mortensen.

The flop almost killed Howard's chances stone dead as he saw the dealer fan {J-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{A-Hearts} . The turn of {5-Spades} ended all hope for Howard, and after the {K-Diamonds} river, Mortensen stacked up 1.45m chips.
