MrPaulSeaton • Level 34: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante
Mihai Croitoru was eliminated amid dramatic scenes in Rozvadov

Overnight chip leader Mihai Croitoru has departed the WSOP Circuit Ring Main Event in third place after a dramatic exit to massive chip leader Ivan Banic.

Croitoru moved all-in with {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for just over three million chips and was called by Banic with {J-Hearts}{8-Spades}. The board of {7-Spades}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} saw the Croatian pair up on the flop and Croitoru couldn’t find a three-outer. Yehuda ‘Chikita’ Cohen high-fived Banic upon completion of the hand as bizarre scenes saw Banic trying to shake Croitoru’s hand.

We are heads-up, with Banic holding an 8:1 chip lead.
