Tim Fowler loses 3-way pot to go out in 11th place. Players have drawn for seats at the unofficial final table.
Tim Fowler pushed the last of his chips into the middle preflop with ace-four and got two callers. The outlook for Fowler looked grim as both of his opponents had ace-king. A four on the flop raised his spirits but the turn king changed that quickly. The river did not bring a four and Fowler was out in 11th. Full chip counts for the final ten are coming in the next post.
