Sorel Mizzi Eliminated in 3rd Place (£161,560)

[user101598] • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Sorel Mizzi - 3rd Place

Sorel Mizzi raised to 130,000 out of the small blind, Jason Lavallee three-bet to 280,000 from the big, and Mizzi moved all in for 1.3 million or so. Lavallee grabbed a small stack of chips and plopped it forward, signifying a call.

Mizzi: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Lavallee: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

The dealer rapped the table, discarded a burn card, then fanned {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, giving Lavallee a leading pair of jacks. The {2-Diamonds} on the turn was a blank, and Mizzi was already up out of his chair and collecting his things by the time the {q-Clubs} completed the board.

The Canadian will earn £161,560 for his efforts.

"I owe you a few beers," Simon Higgins told Lavallee with a wide grin on his face.

"Yeah," Lavallee returned, "I did a lot of work for you."

Lavallee will begin heads-up play with a 20-to-1 chip advantage.
