Daniel Fuhs Eliminated in 4th Place ($152,655)

Daniel Fuhs - 4th Place
Daniel Fuhs - 4th Place

Daniel Fuhs was extremely short stacked when he went all in for 525,000. Scott Montgomery called from the big blind and we were off to see how Fuhs' tournament life would turn out.

Fuhs: {k-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Montgomery: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}

The flop was no help to Fuhs when it came {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{8-Spades}. The turn was a meaningless {3-Hearts} and the river was the {3-Spades}. Fuhs failed to pair either one of his overcards and was eliminated in fourth place.

We're now down to three-handed action and will be back in a moment with detailed chip counts.

The turn card was a {4-Spades} and both players checked. The river brought a {q-Clubs} to the felt and the players checked again.

They both had {k-}{10-}... chop chop!
