Mike Watson Eliminated in 4th Place ($115,117)

Mike Watson

Jesus Cortes min-raised the button and Mike Watson three-bet the pot in the small blind. Cortes piled in the additional 500,000 and they headed to the {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop on which Watson moved in for 12 blinds and Cortes called with the superior stack.

Mike Watson: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Spades}
Jesus Cortes: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

The {q-Diamonds} turn once again kept Watson in contention but this time he didn't hold up as Cortes rivered a full house thanks to the {6-Spades}. Watson surpassed more than $3 million in WSOP cashes but had to settle for 4th place and $115,117.03.
