Yardley • Level 23: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Bruno Politano - 17th

Just before the break Bruno Politano had lost most of his chips to Nam Le when he got it in on the turn of a board reading {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

Lee had {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} and Politano showed {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. The river however was the {8-Hearts} giving Lee the better flush and Politano was crippled.

Back after the break Sean Dempsey opened and called when Politano moved all in.

Politano had {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and was racing against the {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} of Dempsey.

The board ran out {10-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} with the turn card crushing the Brazilian’s last hope.
