Event 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Mario Puccini Eliminated in 11th Place ($41,976)

Mario Puccini 11th place

It was folded over to Greg Ostrander in the small blind, who raised Mario Puccini's big blind to 52,000. Puccini made the call to see a flop, which brought the {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}.

Ostrander led out for 75,000 and Puccini raised to 150,000. Undeterred, Ostrander went all in and Puccini called all in for his last 400,000.

Puccini: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for the flopped nut-straight.
Ostrander: {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for an inferior straight with a flush draw.

Puccini was in the lead, however, the {2-Diamonds} turn left Ostrander with the diamond flush. A meaningless {5-Spades} fell on the river and Puccini was sent to the rail in 11th place.
