Fausto Tantillo Eliminated in 13th place (€10,275)

ChrisBean • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Fausto Tantillo

From UTG +1 Fausto Tantillo bet 110,000 which prompted Luc Ta to three-bet to 425,000 at the cut-off. Nedeljko Todorovic made a cold call from the small blind. After much consideration, Tantillo pushed for 2,100,000.

Ta weighed up his options and decided to move all-in himself. Todorovic quickly folded to allow his competitors to battle it out on the WSOP Europe Main Event ticket bubble.

Luc Ta: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Fausto Tantillo: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Tantillo walked into Ta's pocket aces at the most inopportune time as it turned out Todorovic was holding the other pair of jacks meaning he would have to hit either a four-card flush or straight to win the pot.

The flop of {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} gave a glimmer of hope for a flush possibility, but the {3-Spades} turn guaranteed the pot to Ta and sends Tantillo to the cage for a five-figure payday.
