HillKerby • Level 22: 15,000-25,000, 4,000 ante
Rocco Palumbo

Players are now on a 10-minute break.

On the last hand before the break, Rocco Palumbo opened to 50,000 on the button and Justin Liberto three-bet to 185,000 in the small blind. Palumbo called and action checked through the flop {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Liberto bet 145,000 on the turn {k-Spades} and Palumbo called, bringing the river {4-Spades}.

Liberto slid out a stack of 25K-chips, just enough to put Palumbo to a decision for the last of his chips. After a few moments, a call was made.

Rocco Palumbo: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Justin Liberto: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Liberto had Palumbo out-kicked and Palumbo was eliminated in eighth place as a result.
