Dario Alioto Eliminated in 17th Place ($9,823)

Dario Alioto - 17th place
Dario Alioto - 17th place

Charalampos Lappas, who seemed to be a bit steamy after losing a big chunk of his stack to Steven Loube, raised to 30,000 from middle position only to have Dario Alioto three-bet pot from the cutoff. After the button and blinds got out of the way, Lappas moved in and Alioto called off for around 155,000 total.

Lappas: {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Alioto: {A-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

"Clubs," Lappas screamed after the flop came down {8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. He knew if he hit one he'd scoop the large pot. The {J-Spades} turn was of no consequence, and Lappas tried one last time, "Club."

Ask and you shall receive . . . {5-Clubs} on the river. Alioto shook his head and remained silent as Lappas went to his rail to celebrate. Alioto was eliminated in 17th place and will take home $9,823.
