Carlos Loving

Carlos Loving was a big portion of his stack in a heads-up pot against Ali Eslami on a board of {8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. Eslami bet 275,000 on the river and Loving called before Eslami showed {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for a flopped set to cooler the flopped two pair of Loving with {a-}{3-}.

The next hand, Loving open-jammed a stack of 180,000 and Robert Cowen called.

Carlos Loving: {a-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Robert Cowen: {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

Loving was in great shape to double up after the flop of {6-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Spades}, but the {5-Spades} on the turn improved Cowen's hand and Loving was eliminated in 12th place after the {j-Hearts} river. Loving had a tough Day 3 and lost a few big hands after getting it in as a big favorite.
