Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Tony Ruberto Eliminated in 3rd Place ($200,476)

Chad_Holloway • Level 29: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante
Tony Ruberto - 3rd Place

Hand #120: Tony Ruberto received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #121: Gordon Vayo called from the button, Tony Ruberto raised to 225,000 from the small blind, and Davidi Kitai three-bet to 455,000 from the big. Vayo folded, Ruberto moved all in for 1.52 million, and Kitai called.

Ruberto: {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Kitai: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}

It was a bad spot for Ruberto, and it got even worse when the {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop paired Kitai. The {q-Diamonds} turn gave Ruberto some hope with a flush draw, but the {10-Clubs} ended up blanking on the river. Ruberto exited in third place and will take home $200,476 for his performance.

He's no doubt disappointed, but considering he began the day dead last in chips, it's an impressive performance.
