LAS VEGAS (AP) -Florida poker professional John Dolan has been eliminated from the World Series of Poker after trying to make a move to gain more chips before minimum bets rendered his stack useless.
Dolan was bounced from the no-limit Texas Hold 'em tournament in sixth place on Saturday night after gambling with a queen and a five.
Jonathan Duhamel, a 23-year-old poker pro from Canada, called with a pair of fours. The fours held through five community cards and Duhamel took the last of Dolan's chips.
Dolan won $1.77 million for sixth place. Each of the five remaining players are guaranteed at least $2.33 million each.
A total of 7,319 players entered the tournament in July, generating a top prize of $8.94 million.
