Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Hand #188: Filippo Candio Eliminated in 4th Place ($3,092,545)

Filippo Candio - 4th place

John Racener has the button in Seat 7.

Filippo Candio open-shoves from the small blind. Joseph Cheong quickly calls and the theater rises to its feet again.

Candio: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Cheong: {a-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

{a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Spades} is "not a bad flop" for Cheong and utter disaster for Candio. Cheong pairs his ace and leaves Candio looking for running cards. The {5-Hearts} that falls on the turn is not one of those runners. Candio is drawing dead going to the river {4-Spades}. That card gives Cheong an unnecessary wheel.

Candio is the fourth-place finisher and leaves the stage to chants of "Filippo! Filippo" from his rail.
