Michael VanderWoude open-shipped his stack from the button for 1.29 million, William Luciano took several moments to think and then called. Mike Rieck went deep into the tank in the big blind before electing just to call.
Luciano and Rieck went to the flop of Qc Td 2s and Luciano immediately moved all in. Rieck tanked again, talked himself into a call and tabled pocket jacks.
Luciano turned up pocket kings and VanderWoude held Ah Jh. The board completed Qs 7d, Luciano’s kings held and there was a double elimination. VanderWoude was out if fourth place and Rieck was credited for third place.
4th Place – Michael VanderWoude ($79,775)
3rd Place – Mike Reick ($109,669)
