Diego Sanchez Eliminated in 3rd Place ($316,407)

Cottrellmkw • Level 36: 300,000-600,000, 300,000 ante
Diego Sanchez

Diego Sanchez moved all in for 12,100,000 from the button and, after asking for a count, Andrew Moreno made the call out of the big blind with the covering stack.

Diego Sanchez: {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Andrew Moreno: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

It was a coinflip for hundreds of thousands of dollars in equity. The {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop pushed Moreno into an almost unassailable lead, though the {9-Clubs} turn did give Sanchez a gutshot. He could not find the required jack, however, on the {9-Spades} river, ending his impressive run in third place that comes with a career-high score of $316,407.
