Shooting Star Tom "Durrrr" Dwan Eliminated by Christina Lindley
Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante
With the final board showing QJ9710, Shooting Star Tom Dwan is tanking under the gun as he faces a bet of 8,800 from middle position. Dwan eventually calls, and his opponent shows KJ for a king-high flush. Dwan mucks his cards and is knocked down to just 6,000 in chips.
Tom "Durrrr" Dwan - 6,000
Though short-stacked, Dwan is still confident and even talks with Mike Matusow (who has 21,600) about doubling down on a bet they have going on this tournament.
About ten minutes later, Tom Dwan moves all in from the cutoff with his remaining chips, and Christina Lindley moves all in over the top from the button. Jason Somerville thinks for about 30 seconds in the big blind before he folds, leaving the potential bounty to Lindley.
Dwan shows QJ, and he's racing against Lindley's 99. The board comes K103108, and Dwan flops an open-ended straight draw but can't improve beyond that. Christina Lindley wins the pot, the $5,000 bounty, and the autographed t-shirt.
Christina Lindley - 34,000
