€1,000 Main Event

Alex Baena Eliminated in 9th Place (€7,500)

zedmaster84 • Level 22: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Alex Baena

Gerard Carbo raised to 80,000 with the {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and was called two ways by Kimmo Kurko from two seats over and Alex Baena in the big blind. The {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop appeared and gave Baena the nut flush draw, which he checked. Carbo also checked and Kurko then bet 70,000.

Baena gave it some consideration and then pushed all-in for 630,000, forcing a fold from Carbo and a sigh-call from Kurko after getting an exact count and using time bank extensions.

Alex Baena: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Kimmo Kurko: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

Baena had one live card on top but failed to connect on the {6-Clubs} turn, the {9-Clubs} river also bricked off and sent Baena to the rail in 9th place for €7,500.
