Event 3: 5th Place – Paul Balzano ($3,814)

$560 No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack (Re-Entry)
Blinds: 12k/24k/3k ante

After bluffing off a good chunk of his stack to Chris Bolek, Paul Balzano moved all in first to act for 295,000 from the cutoff and Richard Leger made the call out of the big blind. They were off to the races with Balzano holding 4c4s and Leger AcKc.

“Give me something,” said Leger as the dealer put out a flop of [9]9s7h. The turn was the 8h and Leger would need a seven, eight, king, or ace to eliminate Balzano. The river was one of those cards… the Ah… and Leger clapped his hands together in celebration.

Balzano finishes in 5th place for $3,814.
