Two Simultaneous Eliminations Bring About the Final Table

Daniel Lupo

Hand #1: In Level 21 with blinds of 4,000/8,000 and an ante of 1,000, Frank "thewholefunk" Funaro raised to 16,000 under the gun and "Q8kicksass" re-shoved for their last 28,116 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Funaro and he called.

"Q8kicksass": {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Frank "thewholefunk" Funaro: {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

A king on the flop {k-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} left "Q8kicksass" drawing thin and another one on the turn {k-Clubs} reduced their chances to zero. The river {4-Spades} came to finish the runout and make the hand official, eliminating them from the tournament in 11th place.


Hand #2: On the other table at the same time, action folded to Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari in the small blind and he open-jammed for the 139,934 effective that remained in Dan "AvaGray" Lupo's stack in the big blind. Lupo called.

Dan "AvaGray" Lupo: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Sridhar "sri100k" Sangannagari: {8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}

Lupo needed to hold and instead saw a flop of {4-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} leave him drawing incredibly thin. The turn {5-Spades} gave him four chop outs, but he missed by one pip as the river {5-Diamonds} came to leave his hand no good and result in him bubbling the final table as the 10th place finisher for the event.
