Justin Liberto Eliminated in 9th Place ($38,222)

NicholasBaltz • Level 27: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Justin Liberto

Niko Koop was all in and at risk preflop against Justin Liberto.

Niko Koop: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Justin Liberto: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {2-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} giving Liberto trip jacks, but Koop drilled a nine for a full house on the river to survive. Liberto was left with just 385,000.

"Let's go," shouted Koop!

Shortly after Liberto found himself in a three-way all-in with George Wolff and Huy Nguyen.

Justin Liberto: {j-Spades}{9-Spades}
George Wolff: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Huy Nguyen: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

The board came {5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and Liberto could find no help as he exited in ninth. Wolff also doubled through Nguyen.
