Event 4: Mark Fowler – 9th Place ($544)

$250 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 19: Blinds 4,000/8,000/1,000 ante

The madness unleashed by the Bruce MacGregor elimination continued just a few hands later when two players were at risk.

Mark Fowler had Avi Hakmon and Mike Green covered in chips but behind with cards. Green was ahead for the side pot with AhKh, Hakmon was ahead for the main pot with Ac8c, and Fowler needed help for the double KO with KsQh.

The board ran out AdJd6h5d4d to award the pots how they were favored and Fowler dropped down to just a few thousand.

Two hands later and Fowler called an open to 25,000 from Frank Simms leaving just a few 1k chips in his stack. He put them in after the Ad5h2d flop and Simms said he had to call.

Simms flopped top pair with AcJc and Folwer was drawing thin with 4c4d. He couldn’t catch a set or the gutshot to go out in 9th place for $544.
