Michael Carter lost a huge pot right before the start of the final table and was left with less than six big blinds as the last nine racked up their chips to move. Carter lasted all of two hands in the finale and it was Frankie O’Dell who sent him out.
O’Dell opened to 70,000 from early position and Carter called in the hijack. The two players went heads up to the Q♠10♣3♠ flop and O’Dell bet enough to put Carter all-in and he called right behind him with A♣K♦9♠2♥ for a gutshot straight draw and running low cards. O’Dell had him beat when the money went in with A♥A♦J♠8♠ and held through the 8♥ turn and 9♥ river.
O’Dell’s stack now sits at 525,000 and Carter earns $2,847 for his tournament run.
