Simon Pin-Disle raised from the button with a King-Queen, and was 3-bet all-in by Albert N, who was holding Tens. Albert flopped a set, and Pin-Disle was drawing dead on the turn.
Shortly after, Carter Swidler (title picture), possibly the most experienced tournament player in the field, found himself another victim of Rodney Ramalho. Swidler opened that pot, and was 3-bet to 75K by Ramalho who was on the button. The flop was check-called by Swidler, who invested 85K on it. The turn was checked by both, and Rodney went all-in on the river, after Swidler checked again.
Carter Swidler tanked for a bit on the all-in bet, a deterred look on his face. When he called, Ramalho tabled for flopped trips, which was good enough for the knockout.
Then it was Alex Phung’s turn to fall. His came second to Albert’s . They were all-in pre-flop, and neither hit the board.
6th place: Simon Pin-Disle – $4,600.00

4th place: Alex Phung – $7,500.00
