$2,200 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Bruno Politano Eliminated in 6th Place (AU$ 19,809)

zedmaster84 • Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Bruno Politano

Hand #6: Michael Tran opened the action with a raise to 7,000 and only Steven Zhou in the small blind called to see the flop of {6-Spades} {5-Clubs} {7-Hearts}. Zhou check-folded to a continuation bet of 7,500 and Tran raked in the pot.

Hand #7: Bruno Politano made it 8,000 to go and the action folded to Phil Hellmuth. "How much you got there, Bruno?" he asked. The November Niner from Brazil counted his stack and Hellmuth then three-bet to 30,000.

All other players folded and Politano moved all in for around 75,000 in chips. Hellmuth called immediately and it was the classic coin flip.

Politano: {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}
Hellmuth: {A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}

There was no help yet on the {J-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {5-Clubs} flop, but the 13 time bracelet winner spiked the {K-Spades} on the turn to improve. Politano now needed one of the two remaining queens in the deck to avoid elimination, but the {7-Clubs} on the river was a brick. They shook hands and Politano joined the rail.
