Richard Johnston

Sam Higgs limped from middle position, and that inspired Richard Johnston to three-bet to 13,500 from late position. Mike Watson flatted from the big blind, Higgs came along, and three players saw a flop of {6-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. Johnston checked, Watson bet 30,000, and Higgs got out of the way. Johnston called off his last 10,000 or so and the cards were turned on their backs.

Johnston: {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{k-Spades}
Watson: {9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{q-Spades}

The {7-Diamonds} turn gave Watson a straight, and that meant Johnston needed either an eight or seven on the river to stay alive. The dealer burned one last time and put out the {J-Hearts}. Johnston missed and had to settle for eighth place and AU$15,021 in prize money.
