Joseph Cappello Eliminated in 6th Place ($88,500)

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Joseph Cappello - 6th Place

Nick Petrangelo raised to 60,000 under the gun and Joseph Cappello three-bet all in for 175,000 from the small blind. Petrangelo called and Cappello was primed to double.

Cappello: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Petrangelo: {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{q-Hearts} flop gave Petrangelo an open-ended straight draw, and while he didn't hit it on the {K-Clubs} turn, he did when the {A-Spades} spiked on the river.

Cappello made two pair but it was no good as Petrangelo made Broadway to score the first elimination of the final table.
