Brandon Crawford has been eliminated

On a [5d][9h][Th] flop, Brandon Crawford moved all in for 333,000 and sent Steve Sung into the tank.  Steve eventually made the call with [Js][Jc], but Brandon was well in front with [Tc][9c].  Brandon was a 70% favorite to double up through the chip leader, and had to dodge a jack or a five to survive.  The [Kc] turn opened a handful of more outs for Steve as he could now also catch a queen for a straight or another king for a better two pair.  When the [Qc] hit the river, Brandon shot out of his chair in disbelief at what he had seen.  A few minutes later, he came back and shook Steve's hand and said, "I should have told you to fold."  Brandon will collect $20,890.
