Pearce Busts in 25th and Day is Over

[user68268]

Day 4 has come to a close with the elimination of Neil Pearce in 25th place. He was eliminated at the hands of Jeremy Kottler. Pearce was all in preflop holding the {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Kottler had the better pair with the {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}.

The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Pearce whiffed. The turn {9-Diamonds} meant Pearce could only catch a seven on the river to fill up and stay alive. The dealer dealt the {3-Hearts} out of fifth street and that was that. Pearce was eliminated and the tournament was ended for the night with about 10 minutes left in the current level.

We'll have a complete recap coming shortly.
