Ari Engel

Ari Engel raised to 6,500,000 from the button leaving himself 500,000 behing. Richard Alsup called in the small blind and Gary Whitehead folded in the big blind.

The flop came {k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades} and Alsup bet 500,000 putting Engel all in. Engel snap-called.

Ari Engel: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Richard Alsup: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Engel need an ace or backdoor spades in order to keep his bracelet dreams alive, however, it didn't come as the turn came the {6-Spades} and the river the {7-Diamonds} to send Engel to the rail for a third-place finish and a payday of $126,233.
