Joe Ward Eliminated in 7th Place ($65,502)

Joe Ward - 7th place

Hand #65: Mutke raised his button to 80,000, taking a pot chocked full of blinds and antes.

Hand #66: Cada opened for 80,000 in the hijack, and the blinds surrendered.

Hand #67: Ward moved all-in from the cutoff, risking his last 290,000 with {J-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, and Taylor quickly called from the small blind with his {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}. Ward was in bad shape, and the flop of {5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{a-Spades} only put him in a deeper hole. The {K-Diamonds} provided a brief glimmer of hope, and he would need to spike one of the three queens left in the deck to survive.

River: {9-Clubs}

With that, Ward was sent to the payout desk, and his stack was sent to Taylor.
