Rina Garcia Eliminated in 17th Place (Php 50,000)

There is only one lady left in the tournament after Rina Garcia's exit at the hands of Percy Shy.

Pre-flop, Rina shoved her last 224,000 chips in and was called by Percy Shy.

Rina: {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Percy: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Rina was ahead with ace-high but the flop of {4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} left her needing help.

The turn and river did not change anything and Rina exits with Php 50,000 in winnings.

Lester Dethroned by Ronald Dimaano

Lester Edoc
Lester Edoc

After being the dominant player throughout the day, Lester Edoc has been eliminated by Ronald Dimaano.

A few hands back, Ronald had damaged Lester's stack and took the chip lead. On this hand, Ronald came back to finish the job.

After a flop of {7-}{3-}{4-}, Lester moved all in and Ronald instantly made the call.

Lester: {6-}{6-}
Ronald: {7-}{7-}

The monster pot was moved towards Ronald after the turn {10-} and river {3-}.

Never Say Never

Oliver Buquiran
Oliver Buquiran

Pre-flop, Michael Boling made it 50,000 and Oliver Buquiran declared he was all-in for his remaining 67,000. Jun Dalaygon made the call and so did Michael.

Flop: {9-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

After Michael checked on the flop, Jun declared all-in and Michael hesitated before folding his hand.

Jun then flipped over pocket kings, which were way ahead of Oliver's pocket sevens.

With Oliver looking dismayed and ready to go home, Rina Garcia reminded him that he still had a gutshot and several outs.

The turn on the {5-Spades} kept him on that path and a miracle {7-Spades} landed on the river to give him the set and a big triple up.
