Event #2: €1,090 No-Limit Hold'em

Gianluca Cedolia Eliminated in 17th Place (€7,527)

EricRamsey • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

With his stack dwindling down under half the average, Gianluca Cedolia got the last of his chips in with {A-Diamonds} {8-Spades}. Mendel Benoit promptly woke up with {9-Clubs} {9-Hearts}, and he made the call with his covering stack as the rest of the table ducked out.

The {3-Clubs} {10-Spades} {9-Spades} flop was even more of a disaster for the at-risk player, now needing runner-runner straight cards to stay alive. The turn {8-Hearts} ended any potential drama, and the {6-Hearts} river is the last card Cedolia will see today. He's out in 17th place, good for a €7,527 payday.
