Final Table or Bust!

LAS VEGAS–The Pokerati dream of following a local boy all the way to the final table has come to an end. Clonie David Williams Tex Barch Chris Como The Big Randy Jerry Randack Josh Evans has been eliminated. After taking a rough hit by a cowboy who doubled through him, he was in a position where he needed a little luck … needed to win all races and maybe hit a river here or there to get back in the action. Still, he finished high enough that — according to his friends who drove into town overnight — he could start doing what he needed to make it to the final table.

That entailed pushing with A-6 … and getting called, unfortunately, by A-10.

Josh Evans Eliminated By Jason Welch

Josh Evans pushed all-in preflop with {A-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and was called by Jason Welch holding {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Board: {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Welch had the nut flush by the river and Josh Evans was eliminated.

Still, 76th place, for $106,382 … not bad for a guy who was playing $60 tourneys every Tuesday not that long ago. (By the way, Josh is running pretty dern good. He won $49,505 less than a month ago by finishing 2nd in a Venetian Deep Stacks tourney.)

Congratulations, Josh! And thanks for making our main event a little more exciting.

As for Pokerati, we’re off to find another bandwagon to jump on. Remaining Texans, of course, will take priority … as will players with healthy chip stacks.

    Josh, you kicked butt! It seems like yesterday that you were in LITTLE-LEAGUE! Now you are in Prime-Time. You held your own with bracelett winners, and got burned by some creatons. Negrenau, Hellmuth, Greenstein, Moneymaker, Fossilman, Hachem, Raymer, and Ungar,Brunsons, Fergusons, Amarillo Slims were long gone before you. Keep your chin up and go kick some ass! You did wonderful!

    Josh, you kicked butt. Just look at the names you outlasted. It looks like the who’s who of the poker world. Keep the chin up, as you will be back.

    […] others that made it through include SodaSara and Josh Evans. Don’t know what their starting chip counts are or if they are still alive. But happy to see […]
