Mike Rossi

It was four-ways to a flop of Ac6d2d and Thad McNulty checked from the small blind. Ray Mancini bet 250,000 from the hijack and Mike Rossi moved all in for 750,000 from the cutoff. Wagner Wysotchanski considered before he folded, McNulty folded, and Mancini quickly called with the bigger stack.

Mancini: Ah2c
Rossi: AdTc

Rossi was dominating pre-flop but Mancini caught aces up and his two-pair held after the 3d turn and 7s river to send our former chip leader out in 21st.

Ray Mancini – 2,700,000 (68 bb)
Mike Rossi – Eliminated in 21st Place ($6,330)

Tournament staff announced that play would end after Level 23. Players will bag up their chips and return on Monday at noon to continue.
