Jonas Mackoff Eliminated in 13th Place (€32,000)


Just after being crippled by Amerigo Santoro, Carmelo Vasta got his chips back. He went all in from the middle position for his remaining stack of 65,000 and Santoro called from the button. Vasta showed {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} and Santoro opened {J-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}. It seemed all over for Vasta, but the ace on the {10-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {A-Hearts} flop was just what he needed. The turn and the river bricked and Vasta doubled up.

On the very next hand Vasta shoved again, this time for 220,000 from under the gun and Jonas Mackoff made the call, although his stack was even smaller that Vasta's. Ludovic Lacay called as well. and they went three-way into the showdown.

Vasta: {A-Clubs} {7-Clubs}
Lacay: {K-Hearts} {9-Clubs}
Mackoff: {5-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}

The flop ran {Q-Hearts} {A-Diamonds} {A-Hearts} giving trip aces for Vasta and putting Mackoff on the verge of elimination. The {7-Hearts} on the turn and the {Q-Diamonds} on the river didn't change anything and Mackoff was eliminated from the tournament while Vasta tripled his stack.
