The board ran out 9c 6c 6d Tc 5h. No sweat for Puccio and he knocks out two in one hand. Because McCarthy had 15,000 more chips than Cutsinger, he got the pay bump to 8th place. Cutsinger is out in 9th, taking home $7,900 and McCarthy gets 8th place for $10,000: A nice $2,100 bonus for the extra 15,000 chips (three antes). Mike Puccio is up to 4,120,000 after the hand.
