Antonio Lafosse - 12th Place

Two of the shorter stacks left in contention just went to war, and it was Antonio Lafosse's chip stack that was left ravaged and depleted.

Lafosse called the 74,000 all-in bet of Justin Oliver, who held {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}, and tabled the {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} to put Oliver at risk.

Flop: {j-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

The perfect flop for Oliver left Lafosse looking for an ace, but the {10-Diamonds} missed him on the turn. He did pick up a gutshot draw to the Broadway straight, but the {8-Hearts} on the river left him with the second best hand, and a micro-stack with which to attempt his comeback.

Shortly thereafter, Lafosse moved all in with {6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}, but John Juanda finished him off with {A-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} on the {a-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} board. Lafosse exited in 12th place, while Oliver was left to thank an appearance by his girlfriend Stephanie, and their hoodie-clad pooch Cha-Cha, for the sudden infusion of good fortune.
