Benjamin Bond Eliminated in 13th Place (£7,200)

will_shill • Level 24: 10,000-25,000, 25,000 ante
Benjamin Bond

Blind on blind, Benjamin Bond was all in for 140,000 against Al-Farouk Obe.

Benjamin Bond: {7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Al-Farouk Obe: {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

Short-stacked Bond was far behind, raising the spectre of elimination. He was hoping to die another day, with the flop coming {2-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. The final two tables was no time to die for Bond, but the turn {a-Hearts} must have felt like the sky falling in as Obe paired up.

The river {5-Spades} was not enough. Diamonds are forever, Bond wasn't and he was eliminated. He could still take a quantum of solace in the £7,200 payout for 13th place.

Thunderball.
