Joel Dodds Eliminated in 2nd Place ($58,135 AUD)


It took only a handful of minutes a couple of hands, but it's all over here in the Crown Poker Room.

The action started with Tom Middleton opening the button. Joel Dodds made the call and the {5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{j-Spades} flop hit the felt. Dodds checked and Middleton made it 50,000. Dodds then made the check-raise to 128,000 and Middleton promptly made it 370,000 to go. This is when Dodds shoved all in. A call from Middleton and the two players turned their hands over.

Middleton: {j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Dodds: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Dodds was behind, but had plenty of outs with the open-ended straight draw. The {10-Clubs} on the turn and the {3-Spades} on the river brought no help for Dodds as he was sent to the rail in 2nd place, picking up $58,135 for his runner-up finish. With that, an Aussie Millions gold ring goes to Britain!
