Josh Emerson Eliminated in 5th Place; Klein Still Crushing

Event 3: $500 + $60 No Limit

When everyone folds to Josh Emerson on the button, he moves his short stack (231k) all in with K-6 offsuit, hoping to pick up the blinds and antes. But chipleader Matthew Klein calls to force a showdown with QJ.

The board came Q-10-9-x-10, and Klein won the pot with two pair, queens and tens. Josh Emerson was eliminated in 5th place, earning $10,492.
