Event 1: Pedro Palacio – 4th Place ($18,860)

$350 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 29: 60,000/120,000/20,000 Ante

It was getting a little loopy at the final table and David MacDonald was throwing his stack around with malice. He did it once again and caught Pedro Palacio in an unlucky spot.

Palacio opened to 500,000 from the button and MacDonald quickly announced all-in. Michael Ortiz just as quickly folded his hand and Palacio called with AsKs. A great spot against Ac7s right up until the Td7c6s flop.

Neither the 9h turn nor 9s river could save Palacio’s tournament and he was gone in fourth place for $18,860.

The three remaining players took off on a 15-minute break after that hand and MacDonald holding 78% of the chips in play. They will return to blinds at 80,000/160,000 with a 20,000 ante.

Seat 6: David MacDonald – 12,310,000 (77 bb)
Seat 7: Michael Ortiz – 1,110,000 (7 bb)
Seat 9: John Depersio – 2,420,000 (15 bb)
