Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

John Borzio Eliminated in 5th Place ($184,561)

• Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
John Borzio - 5th Place ($184,561)

We now have no more Johns at this final table after John Borzio was eliminated in fifth place after the biggest pot of the night played out at this final table.

Borzio raised to 160,000 and found two callers in Andy Philachack from the small blind, as well as Hasan Anter from the big blind to go three-handed to the flop of {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}.

Philachack and Anter checked to Borzio who shoved for 1,080,000 and both Philachack and Anter called, making it heads-up to the sidepot on the turn of the {8-Diamonds}, where Philachack checked dark. Anter shoved, sending Philachack deep into the tank before he open-folded {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

Borzio: {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Anter: {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Anter had managed to pair his nine, while Borzio was left with just six outs to keep himself alive in this tournament. It wasn't to be - the river was the {5-Clubs} - and with four players left, Anter now holds almost nine million in chips.
