Joseph "ShoeGoat" Walters Eliminated in 7th Place ($9,437)

Chad_Holloway • Level 36: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Joseph "ShoeGoat" Walters moved all in for 915,171 from the cutoff and Chance "BingShui" Kornuth called from the big blind.

Joseph "ShoeGoat" Walters: {5-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}
Chance "BingShui" Kornuth: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Walters was way behind but the {6-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop gave him some hope with a gutshot straight draw. The {a-Hearts} turn paired both players, but Kornuth's kicker was best.

That's what made the difference too when the {6-Hearts} paired the board on the river.
