Max Pescatori

Max Pescatori came back from dinner with just one big bet, and his stint in the seventh level couldn't have been shorter. He was knocked out in the first hand.

Pescatori completed with the {A-Spades} and found calls from Bill Kohler and Justin Bonomo. Pescatori put his remaining 45,000 in on fourth street, and both of his opponents called again. Kohler and Bonomo then checked all remaining rounds.

Max Pescatori: {X-}{X-} / {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} / {X-}
Justin Bonomo: {X-}{X-} / {2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {X-}
Bill Kohler: {X-}{X-} / {3-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} / {X-}

Kohler had {6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} in the hole for a six-low, and the open tens secured him the other part of the pot. Bonomo had {A-Clubs}{6-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for a pair of sixes and a seven-low, while Pescatori opened his {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{J-Hearts} before leaving the tournament.

The four-time bracelet winner from Milan notched his 71st cash from the WSOP, adding a fifth-place finish in the $1,500 Stud Hi-Lo Event to the packed résumé. Pescatori picked up $27,275 for his performance.
