Michael Azzaro

The turbo event lost two quick players at the final table when Obdulio Melo and David Nowling hit the payout desk and then the last seven players settled in for a long grind. They played more than an hour of seven-handed poker until the average stack hit ten big blinds.

There were a lot of shoves but everything was getting through until Michael Azzaro open-shoved for 545,000. Kamar Andries thought for a few minutes and called in the big blind for his 550,000 stack.

Andries: Jh9h
Azzaro: 3h3c

Azzaro was ahead with the small pair, faded the AhQsTs flop, but Andries added a lot of outs. The Jc turn put the Coco WSOPC Main Event champ in the lead and Azzaro was eliminated to break the stalemate.

Kammar Andries – 1,100,000 (14 bb)
