Eddie Blumenthal

Limit Hold'em

Eddie Blumenthal raised from the button with 30,000 behind and was called by Marco Johnson in the small blind and Kevin Gerhart in the big blind. On the {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop, Johnson checked and Gerhart bet for Blumenthal to call all-in and Johnson to call.

The two remaining players checked down the {q-Clubs} turn and the {2-Clubs} river. Gerhart's was holding {k-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and mucked while Johnson had {k-Spades}{q-Spades} for trips queens. Blumenthal's {a-Spades}{8-Hearts} was no good and he departed in third place for $155,971.
