Michael Rocco Eliminated in 3rd Place ($409,020)

Chad_Holloway • Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Michael Rocco

Michael Rocco raised to 90,000 from the button and Nick Petrangelo defended his big blind. The {3-Hearts}{a-Spades}{10-Hearts} flop saw Petrangelo check-call a bet of 75,000, and then he checked the {2-Hearts} turn.

Rocco bet 200,000, Petrangelo check-raised all in, and Rocco thought for a bit before calling off for right around 1 million total.

Petrangelo: {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Rocco: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Petrangelo had turned the flush, which meant Rocco needed another non-ace or six heart to stay alive. The {Q-Clubs} river wasn't what he was looking for, and Rocco became the third-place finisher.
