Hand #18: Tyler Smith Eliminated in 6th Place ($86,837)
Level 18: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Jerry Vanstrydonck raises from the cutoff to 55,000, Jared Jaffee reraises from the small blind to 155,000, and Tyler Smith calls all in from the big blind for 49,000. Vanstrydonck folds.
Tyler shows J3, and he'll need to improve to survive against Jaffee's AQ. The crowd is clearly behind local favorite Tyler at this point.
The flop comes K106, and Tyler loses outs because a jack would give Jaffee a straight. The turn card is the 4, and Tyler needs a three to stay alive.
The river card is the 6, and Jared Jaffee wins the pot with ace high. Tyler Smith is eliminated in sixth place, earning $86,837.
