Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Christopher Perez Eliminated in 4th Place ($23,994)

• Level 21: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Christopher Perez - 4th place

On the first hand of Day 3, Christopher Perez opened to 59,000 in the cutoff. Jason Baker popped it to 145,000 on the button and action folded around to Perez.

After a few moments he called to see the flop come down {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Both checked, landing the {A-Clubs} on the turn. Perez liked that card, immediately shoving for 178,000. Baker snap-called and Perez tabled {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. What looked to be a great turn card for Perez was actually the worst, as Baker tabled {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}. Perez was drawing dead, making the {J-Spades} river card meaningless.

Perez exits in fourth place, while Baker takes the chip lead with 1,098,000.
