Victor Pineiro Eliminated in 5th Place ($616)


Action checked to Pete W on a flop of 8s6h4c and he bet 5,000. Victor Pineiro (pictured), who had previously not wanted to tell us his name, check-called, as did Mike Tadlock.

All three players checked the 6d turn card and they saw the 9h fall on the river. Pineiro leads out for 9,000 and Tadlock folds. Pete W asks how much Pineiro has behind and then puts him all in for his remaining 16,700.

Pineiro calls and shows Ts7d7s2s, good for a straight, but is second best against Pete W’s 8h8d5c5s, good for a full house.

Pineiro will take home $612 for his 5th place finish.
