Fernando Brito Eliminated in 3rd Place ($282,676)

Fernando Brito - 3rd

Fernando Brito just went on a surge, that for a short while looked like it was driving him into contention in this three way battle. But if he was really going to get serious he needed to win a big showdown and when it mattered the most, the cards let him down.

Brito shut down both Weissman and then Quehen with three-bets pre flop before he was facing one himself. It was Weissman who pulled it out of the bag and Brito called bringing us to a flop of {9-Hearts} {6-Clubs} {5-Diamonds}. Weissman bet 400,000 and Brito moved all-in.

"What do you have?" puzzled Weissman before folding.

So the momentum was very much with Brito when he once again three-bet pre flop. Once again it was Weissman and he moved all-in. Brito called and we had the showdown that Brito needed to cement his progress with an accumulation of serious chips.

Weissman{A-Clubs} {J-Hearts}
Brito{9-Clubs} {9-Diamonds}

The flop brought some oohs and aahs from the crown when some of them mistook the queen for a jack - {Q-Hearts} {4-Clubs} {3-Diamonds}. The turn card was the {J-Clubs} and the crowd once again was maniacal. This time, however, Weissman remained unmoved. The river card was the {7-Diamonds} and it was over for Brito. A very sporting Weissman heading over to Brito to console him before heading to the rail for the jubilant high-fives (and the low paw for the mutt).
