Hand #155 - Michael Ruane Eliminated in 4th Place ($2,576,003)


Qui Nguyen raises to 2,700,000 under the gun, and Michael Ruane (pictured) three-bet shoves for 15,700,000 in the small blind. Nguyen asks for the count, then calls to put Ruane at risk.


The     flop is a miss for Ruane, so he's drawing to six immediate outs for his tournament life. The turn is the  , adding a gutshot straight draw to his list of outs.

"You've got ten cards, bro," Jack Effel says, as the crowd builds to a frenzy.

Ruane needs to find a ten, queen, or king to stay alive, but he can not. The   completes the board, giving Nguyen the pot with jacks up. Ruane is eliminated in fourth place, earning $2,576,003.
