Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Alex Cordero Eliminated in 3rd Place ($291,725)

Alex Cordero - 3rd place

Jonathan Hilton opened to 120,000 from the button and Alex Cordero made the call from the small blind. Dominik Nitsche got out of the way and it was heads-up going to the flop.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and Cordero led out for 160,000. Hilton made the call to see a turn, which brought the {Q-Clubs}. This time Cordero checked, prompting a 275,000 bet from Hilton. Cordero tanked for a bit, but then announced he was all in for 925,000 on top. Hilton made the call and hands were revealed.

Cordero: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} for a pair of queens and both straight and flush draws.
Hilton: {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a pair of aces.

The {2-Diamonds} bricked for Cordero and he was sent to the rail in third place.
