Hand #175: One hand back from break, and we have our latest elimination. Chen opened for 800,000 from under the gun, and Liberto three-bet jammed for 3.05 million. Chen quickly called with {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, and he had Liberto's {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts} in terrible shape. The players stood in anticipation while the dealer fanned the flop.

Flop: {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}.

The nine in the window briefly had Liberto's cheering section going crazy, but the ten that followed it quickly silenced their celebration. Liberto would need a second nine to arrive on the turn or river, but the {4-Hearts} and {2-Hearts} came instead, sending the gracious young competitor to the payout desk for a impressive six-figure haul.
