Claudio Rinaldi Eliminated in 21st Place ($9,223)

PLH

Claudio Rinaldi, one of the short stacks coming into Day 3, got his chips in the middle preflop and was squaring off against Cameron New.

Rinaldi: {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
New: {A-Spades}{J-Spades}

It was a bad spot for Rinaldi as he shared an ace with his opponent, but with an inferior kicker. The {5-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop hit New and essentially sealed Rinaldi's fate. The {K-Diamonds} turn gave Rinaldi a gut-shot straight draw to a queen, but the {K-Spades} river was not it. Rinaldi was eliminated from the tournament in 21st place, worth a $9,223 payday.

PLH

Well, the first elimination of the day came just minutes into Level 19. It happened when Jens Hansen got his short-stack all in preflop holding {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and was up against the {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} of [Removed:326]. Hansen was already standing when we made our way to the table, no doubt in reaction to the {4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} flop.

[Removed:327] had flopped a set to put Hansen in a bad way. The {5-Spades} turn left Hansen drawing dead, but just as well the {9-Diamonds} was put out on the river for good measure. Hansen was eliminated in 22nd place and will take home $9,223 for his efforts.

Do you like pot-limit Omaha? How about pot-limit Texas hold’em? If you answered yes to both, then ,boy, do we have the event for you. Day 3 of Event #39 $2,500 PLH/PLO will begin with the final 22 players of a 606-player field, each looking to make the final table and play their way to a WSOP gold bracelet.

Leading the way is David Lestock, who bagged up 452,000 last night. Hot on his heels are Kyle Zartman and Cameron New, who bagged 450,000 and 448,000 respectively.

Action is set to kickoff at 3:00 PM PST, which is just over a half an hour from now. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be at the Rio all day long to bring you all the action and eliminations as we look to crown the latest WSOP Champion.
