Fernandez Eliminated in 3rd Place (635,000 MAD)

KaleGozer • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

With NBaba's shocking elimination, short stack Fernandez laddered up a place he didn't expect ten minutes ago. Having hovered around the ten big blind mark for the better part of two hours, Fernandez kept his stack afloat by getting numerous shoves through.

In the small blind, Fernandez shoved again, this time for 840,000. Pablo Rodero instantly called in the big blind.

Fernandez: {J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Pablo Rodero: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Rodero flopped a set of tens on {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, but Fernandez still had straight outs. He added flush outs as well after the {5-Clubs} on the turn, but the {Q-Diamonds} on the river was a brick. After being short for most of the final table, Fernandez held on until 3rd place and banked 635,000 MAD (€59,307).
