John Gallaher Eliminated in 5th Place ($45,355)


John Gallaher raised from under the gun and Carl Masters called from the button, bringing the two heads-up to a     flop. 

Gallaher continued with a min-bet and Masters called to see the   turn. 

Gallaher led out once again for 160,000 only to have Masters raise to 500,000. Gallaher looked back down at his cards and said, "Get ready to write this one up", as he four-bet jammed for roughly 1,000,000. 

Masters called and the two players tabled their hands.

John Gallaher:   
Carl Masters:

Unfortunately for Gallaher, the   completed the board on the river and ended his Main Event run in fifth place for $45,355. 

Carl Masters - 7,000,000
John Gallaher - Eliminated
