Mario Valbuena

Mario Valbuena opened to 500,000 from the button and Thomas Robertson three-bet to 1,325,000. Valbuena moved all in for about 2,100,000 and Robertson quickly called.

Valbuena: TcTd
Robertson: KsQd

It was a race and Valbuena needed his tens to hold to double up. The Ac8c6h flop was safe but Robertson took the lead when he paired his queen on the Qc turn. The board finished with the 9s river and Valbuena was eliminated in third place.

Thomas Robertson – 17,100,000 (68 bb)
