Ronald Puleo Eliminated in 10th Place ($22,202)

Ronald Puleo opened with a raise to 100,000 from middle position before Dale Eberle pulled out a late-night min-raise to make it 200,000. The action folded around and Puleo moved all in. Eberle snap-called and tabled {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} to have Puleo in bad shape with his {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}.

The flop gave some hope when it arrived {9-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades} but the {6-Hearts} on the turn and {4-Diamonds} on the river eliminated Puleo in 10th place for $22,202.
