Michael Greco Eliminated in 3rd Place ($129,691)

Michael Greco - 3rd place
Michael Greco - 3rd place

L.J. Klein opened with a raise from the small blind, Michael Greco reraised all in for his last 485,000, and Klein called.

Klein {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Greco {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

The flop came {8-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, and Klein was ahead with two pair, but Greco had a flush draw. The turn was the {4-Hearts}, and Greco was still looking for help. But the river was the {5-Spades}, and Greco is out in third, matching his best-ever WSOP finish from last year.

We're heads-up! A short break before the final two carry this battle to the end.

Updated Chip Counts


L.J. Klein -- 2,340,000

Michael Greco -- 695,000

Greco's Turn for a Double-Up


L.J. Klein just doubled up one opponent. And now he's doubled up the other.

Klein opened for 150,000 from the small blind, and Michael Greco called from the big blind. The flop came {8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, Greco committed his last 300,000, and Klein called.

Greco showed {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Klein {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. The turn was the {2-Spades} and the river the {3-Hearts}, and Greco's hand was best.

Klein's still over 2 million, though, while Greco has 875,000.

Double for Proulx


Miguel Proulx raised to 150,000 preflop and L.J. Klein raised enough to put him all in for around 535,000. Proulx called and turned over {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Spades} and was up against Klein's {7-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}.

The flop came out {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}, giving Proulx two pair. The {5-Hearts} on the turn changed nothing and Klein needed a queen or jack to win. The river was the {10-Spades} and Proulx doubled to just over a million while Klein dropped to 2.7 million.

Klein Looking Good


L.J. Klein opened for 105,000 from the button, Michael Greco folded, and Michel Proulx raised to 340,000 from the big blind. Klein called the reraise, and turned to look at Proulx as the dealer dealt the flop. Such is Klein's habit -- to watch his opponent's reaction to the flop rather than the cards being dealt.

Interestingly, this time Proulx was looking at Klein, too, so neither saw the {2-Spades}{A-Spades}{4-Hearts} spread out on the felt before them right away. Eventually Proulx looked down, then bet 300,000. Klein quickly announced a pot-sized reraise, and Proulx instantly mucked his cards.

Klein is now up to 3.235 million, while both Proulx and Greco are right around the 580,000-chip mark.
