Event #17: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E.

Ron Ware Eliminated In 5th Place ($60,036)

• Level 26


Ron Ware tried to make it three in a row for his tournament life, raising to 60,000 from under-the-gun. Aaron Steury reraised to 90,000 from the button to put Ware all-in.


Ware: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Steury: {A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Ware was in great shape with his pair of queens but the flop of {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{10-Clubs} was a mixed bag for the short-stacked player. He had dodged the deadly ace but Steury picked up a slew of additional outs with his four flush. Ware would now need to dodge a club or an ace on the turn and river to keep his momentous comeback alive.

Turn: {5-Clubs}
River: {A-Hearts}

The turn ended the drama by completing Steury's flush and the ace on the river was simply overkill. Ron Ware exited in 5th place and will claim a prize of $60,036 for his run in this event. Steury now holds 1,570,000 chips after the win.
