Francisco Gomez makes his last stand with pocket 7s for 120k against the AK of Vlad Varlashin.

Gomez loses the flip and finishes in third place for $10,140.

“First major tournament, not too bad,” says Gomez who says he’s been playing poker less than one year and picks up his first recorded cash.

“I’m like a rookie quarterback who went to the Super Bowl and lost.”

Varlashin has a slight lead over Seth Berger as they begin heads up play for the title.
