Wil Out…

This just off the pokerwire.com WPT ticker

Annie Duke eliminates Wil Wheaton; John Kabbaj out
Ten minutes after being crippled when an opponent hit trip queens against his pocket kings, Wheaton pushed his last 15k in with pocket kings (again!). Duke called with AK and spiked the ace.

Sorry Wil. Hold’em be a harsh mistress. And that Annie Duke is a damn good player. At least you outlasted Tobey Macguire. 🙂

Update: another blog suggested that he may have peaked as high as number seven. Way to GO Wil.
