Level 23: 10,000/20,000/3,000

Stephen Diamantas

Action folded to Jean Gaspard on the button, who raised to 45,000. Stephen Diamantas three-bet from the big blind to 100,000 and Gaspard called.

The flop was 9c5d4c and Diamantas bets 100,000 and Gaspard immediately raised all in for Diamantas’ remaining 250,000. Diamantas snap-called and showed KcKh. He was way ahead of Gaspard’s 9d2d, good for top pair.

The 9s came on the turn though, and the tables were turned. Diamantas was left with just two outs. The Qs on the river wasn’t one of them and Diamantas was eliminated in 11th place.

The remaining 10 players are re-drawing for seats at the final table.
