Natalia Breviglieri
Natalia Breviglieri

Natalia Breviglieri limped in from the small blind only to see Charles La Boissonniere jam all-in. Breviglieri took no time tossing in a calling chip, putting her tournament life on the line.

La Boissonniere: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Brevliglieri: {a-Spades}{4-Spades}

Breviglieri was in trouble and her run would sadly end in fifth place after finding no assistance on the {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{k-Spades} board.

Marc Guerbilsky Eliminated in 6th Place ($30,000)

Marc Guerbilsky
Marc Guerbilsky

Jason Mandanici-Turcot raised to 800,000 from the hijack and Marc Guerbilsky three-bet to 2,175,000 on the button. Action folded to Charles La Boissonniere in the big blind and he asked to see how much Guerbilsky had behind. Eventually, he moved all-in. Mandanici-Turcot folded and Guerbilsky snap-called.

Marc Guerbilsky: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Charles La Boissonniere: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Guerbilsky was the player at risk, but he held the best of it with two aces, up against a couple of kings for a classic cooler. Unfortunately for him, the flop came {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and La Boissonniere flopped a set to take the lead. The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and Guerbilsky picked up a flush draw. The river was the {8-Diamonds} to give Guerbilsky a flush, but it paired the board and La Boissonniere held. Guerbilsky sat back in his chair and exhaled thinking he won the hand, but once he realized the board was paired he headed for the rail.

Carlos Gerones

Jason Mandanici-Turcot raised to 800,000 and Carlos Gerones three-bet shoved for his last 2,125,000 after running into Mandanici-Turcot's boat two short hands ago. Mandanici-Turcot called and the hands were tabled.

Gerones tabled {a-Spades}{2-Hearts} up against Mandanici-Turcot's {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.

The board ran out {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Mandanici-Turcot's kings and fives were good to send Gerones home in 7th place.

Gerones Stung by Mandanici-Turcot

[user270022] • Level 32: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

On the turn of a {k-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board, Carlos Gerones bet 1,000,000 into a pot of about 4,000,000 and Jason Mandinici-Turcot called.

The {k-Clubs} completed the board on the river and Gerones checked. Mandanici-Turcot bet 1,800,000 and after a short time in the tank, Gerones called for more than half his stack.

Mandanici-Turcot tabled {k-Spades}{j-Hearts} and an unimpressed Gerones mucked.

Aaron Czaja was short-stacked and decided to move all-in from middle position for his last 1,240,000. Garrett Dansereau was on the button and called, while the blinds got out of the way.

Czaja tabled {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} but was heavily dominated by Dansereau's {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Dansereau remained ahead with aces. The turn was the {6-Spades} and Czaja was left drawing dead to the {9-Diamonds} on the river to head to the rail in 8th place.
