10th - Smith, 9th - Gimble, 8th - Fisher

Event 12: $300 + $50 No-Limit Hold'em

Scott Fisher, 8th place

While Kevin Gimble from Philadelphia, PA was eliminated in 9th place for $2,177, he had a smile on his face after he collected his money.  Here's why:

In his penultimate hand, Gimble shoved in with A7 and was called by pocket queens.  Gimble was crippled, with only 40k and three hands to go until he was to be the big blind.  When he was UTG, Gimble folded his hand, and Ken Smith from Brigantine, NJ pushed all in.  JT Davis from Cary, NC made the call, and it was a race with Davis's AK vs Smith's 77.  Davis hit a king on the turn, sending Smith to the rail in 10th place for $1,415.  This unexpected race allowed Gimble to claim 9th place money, hence his happy demeneaor.

Shortly thereafter, Scott Fisher from Little River, SC was eliminated in 8th place for $3,211.
