3Richard Semander$2,040

Rios stayed consistent throughout the day, remaining as one of the upper level stacks for most of the afternoon.He remained within touching distance of the big stack Kim Stone late in the final table and eliminated Richard Semander in 3rd which was enough to boost his stack slightly above Stone's stack, where the players then decided on an even money chop and to give the title to Rios rather than a heads up coin flip with the very shallow stack depth.

That concludes PokerNews's coverage of today's action at the Lone Star Poker Series. Coverage will resume tomorrow at around 2 p.m. local time for a variety of events, including Event #8: The Monster NLH.
