Michael Spegal Eliminated in 16th Place ($14,407)

Michael Spegal

The action folded to Michael Spegal in the cutoff and he tossed in two T25,000 chips for a raise. One seat over, Eric Shanks on the button asked Spegal how much he was playing in total and then raised all in. All players behind them folded and Spegal called off with a sigh that turned into frustration when they turned over their cards.

Spegal: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Shanks: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}

There was no help on the {4-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop for Spegal, then the {Q-Clubs} turn saw him drawing dead. The meaningless {10-Hearts} completed the board and Spegal headed to the payout desk to collect $14,407. All remaining players are now guaranteed at least $18,180.
