Roberto Romanello Eliminated in 7th Place ($48,924)

Roberto Romanello - 7th Place

Jonathan Lane opened to 55,000 on the button and was called by both Craig McCorkell in the small blind and Roberto Romanello in the big.

The flop was a girl's best friend as it fell {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Two checks went to Lane who continued out for 100,000. McCorkell got out of the way and Romanello reached behind and shoved his entire stack in the middle. Lane announced a call and both hands were tabled to see that neither player held a diamond.

Lane: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Romanello: {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Romanello was behind and in need of a queen or a nine, or running diamonds for a chop. He got none of those options as the turn and river brought the {3-Hearts} and the {8-Spades}. Romanello will take home $48,924 for his efforts today.
