Championship: 24th Place – Tim Miles ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

Noah Schwartz opened to 23,000 from middle position and former chip leader Tim Miles moved all-in from the button for 129,000 total. Schwartz took his time and ran through the math, mostly audible, and finally tossed in calling chips with 7d7c.

Miles was flipping for his tournament life with Ah8s. The Th9c5d flop changed little but Miles hit the 8h turn while also giving Schwartz an open-ended straight draw. The 6c dropped on the river to give Schwartz the hand and send Miles out in 24th place for $7,000.

Miles had a healthy chip lead for much of the Championship Event but ran into trouble late in Day 2 and wasn’t able to comeback.
