Vinny Censabella

Sanjib Acharya just became the most recent casualty of Vinny Censabella’s hot streak here late in the Pinktober $565. Holding qd9d on a kd9d8h flop, Acharya got all-in for about 200,000 with a flush draw. Censabella called and turned over jc8s for trips. The turn and river came diamondless and Acharya never improved.

He was eliminated in 25th place while Censabella crossed 2,000,000 chips.

Vinny Censabella

There was an early-position raise to 28,000 and Vinny Censabella called from late position as did Joseph Skarzynski on the button. It was on massive start-of-day chip leader, Fernando Rodriguez, who’d sputtered as of late to claim a mortal stack. Rodriguez shoved the small blind for 373,000 total and it was back on the original raiser.

He folded after a minute or two leaving it up to Censabella who called without hesitation. Skarzynski got out of the way and it was a clash between the current and former chip leader.

Censabella: tstc
Rodriguez: ah3h

Runout: qcqh7d3s2h

Rodriguez was caught with ace-high and improving to a pair of threes wasn’t enough. He was eliminated by Censabella in 34th after beginning the day with more than 1,000,000 chips — twice that of second place.

Censabella stacked a massive pot and took the chip lead as players went on their second break.

Vinny Censabella

Play is going deeper into the money and the stacks are leveling out with Vinny Censabella (820,000), Trevor Hurst (705,000) and Anthony Dianaty (550,000) among the leaders.

There was a quick succession of bustouts as players headed on break with a hand still going on Table 12. At the time, just 52 remained with 51 paying and they were already two minutes into break. Chris Gilkey was at risk preflop for his last roughly 175,000 versus David DiBernardi. Gilkey had the best of it, but needed to fade some outs.

Gilkey: askc
DiBernardi: adqh

DiBernardi spiked his queen to bust Gilkey on the stone bubble. With that, all tables were off to break and in the money.

David DiBernardi

David DiBernardi put an exclamation point on his taking of the chip lead, flopping Broadway and sending an opponent to the rail.

The flop was qsjhts and DiBernardi’s opponent announced, “All-in,” for more than 60,000. DiBernardi snapped having the opponent covered and quickly turned over asks for the nuts Broadway plus a Royal Flush draw. The opponent had a measly ac6c pair and only had slim hopes for a chop.

The turn and river fell 9s7d and DiBernardi grew his stack to over 350,000.

David DiBernardi – 360,000
