$10M GTD, Hand #57: Derrick Cutler Eliminated 8th by Justin Bonomo

Derrick Cutler

Hand #57  –  Ray Qartomy raises under the gun to 300,000, Derrick Cutler calls from the hijack, Justin Bonomo calls from the button, and Blair Hinkle calls from the small blind.

The flop comes Qh 3h 2d, and action checks to Bonomo, who bets 700,000. Hinkle and Qartomy both fold, and Cutler moves all in for about 3.5 million.

Bonomo calls with Ah Qd (pair of queens), and Cutler is dominated and facing elimination as he turns over Qc Jc (pair of queens, lower kicker). Cutler needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is the 5c, the river is the 10d, and Bonomo wins the pot with his pair of queens, ace kicker, to eliminate Derrick Cutler in eighth place.

Justin Bonomo  –  17,500,000
Derrick Cutler  –  Out in 8th Place  ($232,700)

The remaining seven players are guaranteed at least $290,875. As soon as one more player busts, action will stop for today, and the remaining six players will return tomorrow to play to a winner.
