The Comeback Ends, Fernandez Finally Eliminated

Shamus • Nível 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Way back during the first level today, Pedro Fernandez was down to just 16,000 chips — at the time exactly one big blind — when there were still about 200 players remaining.

Fernandez managed to climb out of that hole and build a stack over the rest of the day, even pushing up over 1 million at one point. Alas the comeback as reached an end here in the last half-hour of Level 25, and Fernandez has finally been eliminated.

Fernandez's final hand began with him pushing all in from middle position for 380,000, then watching as Steven Watts called his raise from the cutoff seat. It then folded to Erkut Yilmaz in the big blind who very quickly announced he was reraising all in, and Watts folded his hand instantly.

Fernandez had {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}, but Yilmaz had woken up with {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}. The {7-Spades}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop was no good for Fernandez, although the {Q-Diamonds} did provide some hope. But fifth street was the {10-Hearts}, meaning Fernandez couldn't come from behind in the hand, although he did succeed in making a tremendous comeback here on Day 5 to finish inside the top 75.
