Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship

Chris DeMaci Eliminated in 11th Place ($56,140)

Chris DeMaci (11th Place- $56,140)

Action folded to Nick Grippo on the button and he put in a standard raise to 45,000. Chris DeMaci was next to act in the small blind and he went with a three-bet to 153,000. The big blind got out of the way and Grippo simply moved all in. DeMaci called off and the cards were turned on their backs.

Grippo: {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
DeMaci: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

As with all no-limit hold'em tournaments, so many all-in situations were simply a flip. DeMaci no doubt had high hopes for his over, but the {4-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop wasn't any help. The {Q-Hearts} turn left DeMaci in need of an ace or jack on the river, but it was not meant to be as the {K-Spades} blanked.

Grippo's small pocket pair held to vault him over 2 million while DeMaci was eliminated in 11th place, earning his fourth cash of the 2011 WSOP in the process.
