Mario Silvestri Eliminated in 12th Place ($41,784)

mnuwwarah • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Mario Silvestri - 12th Place

Vincent Maglio raised to 48,000 under the gun, and Mario Silvestri pushed all in from his immediate left for over 400,000. On the button, Nicolas Faure jammed his 1.2 million stack in. Maglio tossed {a-}{q-} face-up into the middle.

Faure: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Silvestri: {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}

We had a classic race on our hands, and a board of {3-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} meant Faure had won it with a pair of kings. Silvestri exited the tournament with a 12th-place finish.

"Play bad one time and call," lamented Maglio, who would have made a straight.
