Super High Roller

Galen Hall Eliminated in 3rd Place ($470,400)

Galen Hall - 3rd place

Dan Shak folded his button, and that was probably a very good idea. Viktor Blom raised to 150,000 in the small blind, and Galen Hall went ahead and shoved all in for 1.54 million from the big. Snap-call! Cards up.

Blom: {A-Hearts} {A-Clubs}
Hall: a big sigh... then {9-Clubs} {9-Spades}

"Those nines do hit though, don't they?" Hall asked rhetorically, hoping to conjure up a set. He could not. The board ran out {5-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {3-Diamonds} {J-Clubs} {K-Clubs}, and that's that.

It's hard to say enough about Galen Hall's efforts here at the PCA. He won $2.3 million by binking the Main Event last time around, and this time, he was just two places from hoisting the Super High Roller trophy. He'll have to settle for a third-place consolation prize worth nearly a half-million dollars for now, but he'll be taking his seat in the Main again tomorrow with an eye on a repeat.
