Alex Queen Eliminated in 8th Place ($20,370)

Alexander Queen

Al Barbieri started the action by raising in the cutoff, and Alex Queen three bet on the button. It folded back to Barbieri, and he made the call. The flop came down {8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, and Barbieri check called a bet from Queen. The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, and Barbieri led out for 40,000. Queen had just a few thousand more, and he committed them to the pot. Barbieri called, and the cards were tabled.

Barbieri: {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Queen: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The turn was a cooler card, as it gave Barbieri the straight, and Queen a set. Queen would need the board to pair to survive, but the river was the {j-Hearts}. Queen will take home over $20,000 for his efforts, while Barbieri is now over 850,000.
