Hand #79: With a dead small blind, Brian Aleksa raised from the button and Todd Witteles three-bet from the big blind. Aleksa called, the flop fell and Witteles bet. Aleksa called, the turned and this time Witteles checked. Aleksa took the opportunity to bet and Witteles folded.
Hand #80: Witteles raised from the small blind and Ben Yu called from the big. Witteles wasted little time in betting the flop, Yu raised and Witteles three-bet. Yu got the rest of his stack in the middle and discovered the bad news.
Witteles held top pair while Yu was on a gutshot straight draw. Neither the turn nor river changed a thing and Yu was eliminated in seventh place. Not too shabby considering he began the day on the second shortest stack.
