Shooting Star Joe Hachem Eliminated in 20th Place ($20,000)

Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

After a flop of 9club6diamond5diamond, Shooting Star Joe Hachem bets 20,000 from the small blind, and Brandon Cantu calls from the big blind. The turn card is the 2spade, Hachem bets 40,000, and Cantu raises to 150,000. Hachem goes into the tank for about four minutes, and finally decides to move all in for a total of 231,500. Cantu asks for an exact count before he calls with Aclub6club for a pair of sixes. Hachem shows Kspade9heart for a pair of nines, and he's a big favorite to double up. Cantu needs an ace or a six to bust Hachem, who walks about a table away so he doesn't have to see the river card with his own eyes -- he'll know what it is by the crowd's reaction before TD Matt Savage even has a chance to announce it. The river card is the Adiamond. The crowd lets out a shocked moan, and Hachem yells, "Nooo!" as he grabs his head in disbelief. Cantu wins the pot with two pair, aces and sixes. Joe Hachem is a Shooting Star, a former WSOP World Champion, and a WPT title-holder -- but he won't be adding another WPT title this week. Hachem is eliminated in 20th place, earning $20,000. Brandon Cantu picks up his fouth bounty of this tournament, busting Bill Edler, John Juanda, Phil Laak, and now Joe Hachem. He's earned $20,000 in bounties, along with a $10,000 bonus for finishing with the most chips at the end of Day 1a. He's also guaranteed at least $24,000 by finishing in the top 18. (19th place just busted.) Brandon Cantu is the reigning Bounty Hunter of this tournament so far. And there are two bounties left in the field: J.C. Tran and Jennifer Harman.

Thanh Che Eliminated in 21st Place ($20,000)

Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

After a flop of 8club6spade5club, Thanh Che checks, Ed Fernandez bets an unknown amount, Thanh Che check-raises all in for about 120,000 more, and Fernandez instantly calls with Aspade8spade for a pair of eights. Thanh Che shows Aclub3club for a flush draw, and he'll need to improve to stay alive. The turn card is the Qspade, which gives Fernandez a meaningless spade flush draw, since Thanh Che needs a club to win the pot anyway. The river card is the 5diamond, and Ed Fernandez wins the pot with two pair, eights and fives, increasing his stack to about 510,000. Thanh Che is eliminated in 21st place, earning $20,000.
