Mark Vella Eliminated in 9th Place (€10,000)

poolshir • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Mark Vella

Mark Vella shoved from under the gun and Dario Marinelli asked for a count from the cutoff. The dealer confirmed Vella had 1,500,000 exactly. Marinelli decided to shove for more and Leendert Marcus shoved too from the small blind with a similar stack. Tomas Sujeta quickly folded his big blind for what was to be a huge setup.

Mark Vella: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Leendert Marcus; {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Dario Marinelli: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Everyone from the rail and the side events rushed to the table to see what was happening.

The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for the aces to hold which meant Vella was out in 9th place. The stack of Marcus was counted and confirmed to be 3,815,000. Marinelli had him covered but wasn't left with much.
