Nick Petrangelo Eliminated in 4th Place (€205,900)

Nicholas Petrangelo

Just two hands after we lost Dani Stern it was Nick Petrangelo who moved all in from the button for just 88,000 chips. Connor Drinan three-bet to 175,000 from the small blind and Dzmitry Urbanovich gave up his big blind.

Drinan: {J-Spades}{10-Spades}
Petrangelo: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

The flop brought {K-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Petrangelo called for the nine of diamonds to make things a bit more exciting. The turn brought the {Q-Spades} and Petrangelo said, "Oh man, I hadn't even thought of that one."

Both Drinan and Petrangelo laughed as the former now had an open ended straight and flush draw.

The river was the {9-Clubs} and Drinan filled up his straight.

"Good game guys," Petrangelo said with a smile, before shaking the hands of the three remaining players.

With little chips to play with all day Petrangelo managed to stay in the tournament for quite some time and this result will go down as his second biggest ever after finishing sixth in the PCA $25,000 High Roller for $301,500 earlier this year. Before this event started Petrangelo was fifth on the GPI Player of the Year ranking and this result will obviously improve his position.
