Event 15: Michael Wang Eliminated in 6th Place ($7,020)

$1,650 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold ‘Em (Single Re-Entry)
Level 17: 2000/4000/500 Ante

The second hand back from the break brings a finish to another player as Michael Wang fell in a three-way pot to end his run here in Event 15.

Wang pushed his last 30,500 in and saw Konstantinos Pantaridis also go all-in with his 37,000 and both were called by Ardit Kurshumi.

Wang: Ah2d
Pantaridis: AcKd
Kurshumi: AsKc

With Wang in major trouble, it got even worse as the flop came Kh6hJd giving both his opponents a pair of kings. Wang managed to catch a heart flush draw with a 10h turn but the 4c ended it and Wang was out in 6th place with a $7,020 payout.

This is Wang’s fifth cash of this series and third final table.  One of those cashes was in a satellite, winning a seat in the $10 Million Guaranteed Championship event.
