• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Celina Lin (Day 3) - 22nd Place
Celina Lin (Day 3) - 22nd Place

Ami Barer opened with an early positioned raise to 16,000 only to have Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin three-bet ship for 72,000 from two seats over. Dimitar Danchev was next to act and he flatted Lin's all in raise. Action folded back to Barer and he moved all in over the top, only to find a call from Danchev. The hands were exposed and the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event winner had two opponents all in and at risk.

Danchev: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Barer: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Lin: {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

The flop came down {J-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}, pairing Barer's king and giving him the lead in the hand. The {Q-Spades} touched down on fourth street and the {Q-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Lin's fours were unable to improve and she was eliminated as the 22nd place finisher. Barer, on the other hand, doubled through Danchev and now has about 590,000 to his name.

Sbrzesny: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Mizzi: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

The board fell down {4-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{K-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, keeping Sbrzesny's pocket tens in the lead. He scored the double up and now has about 280,000 to his name.
