Eric Blair Eliminated in 3rd Place ($127,300)

• Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Eric Blair - 3rd Place

Hand #85: Eric Blair raised the button to 60,000 and John Beauprez three-bet from the small blind to 145,000. Blair flat called to see a flop.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and Beauprez continued his aggression with a 170,000-chip bet. Blair announced that he was all in for 790,000 total and Beauprez snapped him off.

Beauprez: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}
Blair: {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

Beauprez was out in front and Blair needed to make something happen in order to stay alive at this final table. The {k-Spades} on the turn was of no help, though, and neither was the {4-Diamonds} on the river. Blair became our third-place finisher and will collect $127,300 in tournament winnings.
