Eric Hicks Eliminated in 4th Place ($101,513)

Eric Hicks

Rudolph Sawa raised to 100,000 from the button, Louie Calvo called from the small blind, Eric Hicks moved all in from the big blind for his last 125,000, and Sawa and Calvo both called.

The flop came {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Sawa bet 100,000 into the side pot. Calvo folded and Sawa and Hicks flipped over their cards.

Sawa: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Hicks: {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Sawa had a commanding lead with his aces and nut flush draw and Hicks had little hope of preserving his tournament life. The {Q-Spades} turn and {5-Diamonds} river were no help to Hicks and he was eliminated, much to the dismay of his enthusiastically supportive rail.
