Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Luis Velador Eliminated in 10th Place ($565,193)

mnuwwarah • Level 35: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Luis Velador - 10th Place

Hand #23: William Pappaconstantinou raised to 900,000 in the hijack. Jorryt van Hoof made it 2.25 million on the button, chasing the blinds out, and Pappaconstantinou followed suit.

Hand #24: Bruno Politano raised to 900,000 in middle position, and Mark Newhouse called from the button. Luis Velador risked it all in the small blind for 6.15 million, and Politano thought for about two minutes before mucking. Newhouse took a bit of time as well before deciding to call.

Newhouse: {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Velador: {4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Velador needed a four to avoid busting on the most disappointing bubble in poker. The flop: {6-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}. The {3-Hearts} turn closed out chopping possibilities. The Brazilian crowd broke into song again as the dealer prepared to deliver the river card. It was the prettiest card in the deck: the {a-Spades}, and Velador was done in by the bigger boat.
