Ellen Lambeth Eliminated In 14th Place ($11,694)

Charlie Nguyen shoves in the big blind. Ellen Lambeth, in the hijack, is the only other player left in the hand and she calls Nguyen's all-in bet. The two showdown.

Charlie Nguyen:   
Ellen Lambeth:   

The board runs out      . Nguyen's pocket kings take the pot. Lambeth begins to stand up, assuming she is knocked out. However, the dealer is conducting a count because the chip stacks are close in size. Turns out they are so incredibly close, Lambeth is still alive, but with just a single 5,000 denomination chip to her name.

Charlie Nguyen - 748,000 (37 bb)
Ellen Lambeth - 5,000 (<1 bb)

The next hand, Lambeth is all in for her last 5,000 against two opponents. She takes down the pot with the   in her hand and four hearts on the board.

A little over 20,000 now, Lambeth eventually finds herself all in again. This time there is a showdown between her and Lytle Allen. Lambeth flips over    and Allen tables   .

The board comes       and Lambeth cannot hang on.

Lytle Allen - 770,000 (38 bb)
Ellen Lambeth - Eliminated in 14th place ($11,694)
