Salvatore Bonavena Eliminated in 3rd Place (€57,079)

[user153638]
Salvatore Bonavena sees the flop and his chances fall.

In the very next hand after Antonin Teisseire's elimination, Antonio Esfandiari raised to 27,000 from the cutoff and then called when Salvatore Bonavena moved all in from the big blind.

Showdown
Bonavena: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}
Esfandiari: {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

The crowd could barely keep up with all the action, and for the second time in a row the suspense was smothered by a flopped set as Esfandiari's sixes found a third on the {6-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{K-Spades} flop. The {3-Spades} turn left Bonavena drawing dead, while the {3-Clubs} river sent him out the door in third place for €57,079.
