Shawn Buchanan Eliminated by Dwyte Pilgrim
Level 16: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
With the board showing Q873 on the turn, Dwyte Pilgrim bets 60,000, and Shawn Buchanan calls. The river card is the 6, Pilgrim moves all in, and Buchanan goes into the tank. Pilgrim has more chips, so this is a decision for Buchanan's tournament life.
Pilgrim: "Regardless of what you do, you played this hand well."
Buchanan: "Maybe it's time for a hero call."
Pilgrim: "Heroes die young."
Buchanan calls, and Pilgrim shows K10 for the second nuts -- a king-high flush. Buchanan mucks, and Pilgrim wins the pot. Shawn Buchanan is eliminated in 15th place, a few spots shy of the money bubble.
Dwyte Pilgrim - 520,000
Shawn Buchanan - Eliminated
With Buchanan's elimination, Carlos Mortensen is the last remaining former WPT winner in the field. Furthermore, Todd Terry and Gevork Kasabyan are the final two players with a chance to catch Faraz Jaka in the WPT Player of the Year standings in this, the second-to-last tournament of the season.
