Event #20: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Valentin Vornicu Eliminated in 3rd Place ($39,830)

• Level 24: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Valentin Vornicu

Valentin Vornicu started his last hand raising with the {8-Diamonds}; Eli Elezra took him on for his tournament life, showing his hand at the start: {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{k-Hearts}.

Vornicu's hand ran out {8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, with the final card dealt face down.

"I'll look at mine first," said Elezra, squeezing the {6-Diamonds} to add to his kings and the {7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{x-}

"That's one of my outs," said Vornicu.

Not one of his outs was the {8-Spades} river card, and a handshake later we're heads up.
