Patryk Poterek Eliminated in 9th Place ($92,020)

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Patryk Poterek - 9th Place

Hand 11: Maria Lampropulos looked down at the {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} under the gun and she raised to 90,000. Two spots over, Poterek picked up the {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and three-bet to 265,000. Action folded back to Lampropulos and she thought for nearly three minutes before someone called the clock.

Eventually, she moved all in and Poterek called off for 1.62 million. It was a classic flip, and Poterek was looking to hold to double big. The {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop was gin for Lampropulos, who hit trips. Poterek was looking for a lady, but he didn't get it on the {2-Spades} turn.

He had the river to go, but it was brick city as the {5-Clubs} peeled off. With that, Lampropulos becomes the first female to make the PCA final table since Xuan Liu did it back in 2012.
