Tom McCormick had only 40,000 left and he was dealt the {2-Clubs}. McCormick placed all his chips in front of him and Richard Monroe isolated with a raise. Nobody else joined and McCormick raced for his tournament life.

Tom McCormick: {J-Hearts}{3-Spades} / {2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} / {6-Clubs}
Richard Monroe: {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} / {J-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{8-Diamonds} / {10-Hearts}

Monroe started with buried kings and improved to aces up on the way. McCormick couldn't make anything but queen-high and bowed out in fifth place.

"I'm now 0 for 15 on final tables for bracelets," he said before shaking hands with each of the remaining players.
