Nick Grippo - 9th Place

From early position, Nick Grippo raised to 32,000 and Josh Bergman reraised all in for around 310,000 effectively. Grippo snapped with the {K-Spades}{K-Clubs} and was ahead of Bergman's {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}.

The flop came down {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Grippo stayed in front. The turn was the {A-Clubs}, and the river delivered the {Q-Hearts}. With that river, Bergman smashed a set of queens to win the pot and sent Grippo to the rail in ninth place.
