Eric Froehlich Eliminated in 23rd Place ($282,630)

• Level 32: 120,000-240,000, 40,000 ante
Eric Froehlich

Outer Table Hand #29: Antoine Labat opened to 550,000 in early position and Martijn Gerrits three-bet to 1,700,000 from the hijack. Alex Lynskey put in a four-bet to 4,100,000 from the cutoff and Eric Froehlich five-bet shipped for around 16,300,000 from the small blind. Labat and Gerrits both quickly folded and Lynskey made the call.

Eric Froehlich: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Alex Lynskey: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Lynskey was in a great position to eliminate Froehlich and win a monster pot. The flop came {9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Lynskey was still well in the lead. The {3-Spades} on the turn meant Froehlich would need to hit one of two remaining queens in the deck. The river brought the {2-Diamonds} and Froehlich headed to the payout desk in 23rd place.
