Laurence Essa Eliminated in 3rd Place (£10,100)

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante
Laurence Essa - 3rd place

Christopher Gordon continued to put his two opponents under pressure and eventually grabbed 325,000 from Jesus Gracia after the Spaniard had limped and called Gordon's raise. On a flop of {5-Clubs} {4-Spades} {3-Spades} Gracia then check-folded to a continuation bet.

Soon after, Laurence Essa would move all in from the button for 1.5 million and Gordon made the call in the big blind.

Gordon: {A-Spades} {9-Spades}
Essa: {Q-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds}

"Deuce, deuce, deuce," Essa begged towards the dealer and he then changed his mind after the {5-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {6-Clubs} flop, now asking for a queen. The wish was denied as the {5-Spades} turn and {8-Hearts} river completed the board. Essa was eliminated in third place for £10,100 and we are now in heads up.
