Mike Policastro

The remaining players seemed to be in no hurry to get their chips in the middle and it was becoming desperate for more than a few as the average stack dropped to 22 big blinds.

Mike Policastro thought he found the perfect spot to get some chips back.

Rogelio Padilla open-shoved for 375,000 from under the gun and the move made it around to Policastro in the small blind. He moved all in to get a fold from the big blind and Padilla was not happy to see the hands.

Policastro: AdAc
Padilla: 8s8c

Padilla was halfway out of his seat when the dealer put out the Th8d6d flop. He sat back down after hitting the set and Policastro could not return the favor on the 9c turn or Qs. He was down to 240,000 and hit the payout desk on the next hand.

Rogelio Padilla – 820,000 (21 bb)
Mike Policastro – Eliminated in 20th place ($4,005)
