Level 17 - 5,000 / 10,000 / 1,000
Julie Anna Cornelius raises from the cutoff to 22,000 and Tim Sipe calls on the button. Cash Carpenter calls from the big blind and we see a flop of J♠9♣2♦. Carpenter and Cornelius check to Sipe and he bets 48,000. Carpenter snap-shoves for 114,000 total and Cornelius folds.
Sipe calls and the hands are turned up.
Sipe - K♠T♠
Carpenter - T♣8♦
Carpenter is open-ended and Sipe is in front with King-high. The turn is the Q♠ giving both players a straight, but Sipes was best as a King-high straight. The meaningless 9♥ hit the river to complete the board but Carpenter was already out of his seat and headed to the payout counter. Carpenter finished 22nd for $408.
Tim Sipe - 320,000
Julie Anna Cornelius - 215,000
Cash Carpenter - Eliminated
24th: Michael McAdams ($408)
23rd: Jonathan Gaviao ($408)
