Joseph Patalano raises the button, and Adil Khan three-bet shoves for about 70,000 in the small blind. Patalano quickly calls with his big stack, and Khan is at risk.

Patalano: AdAsTc6c
Khan: KdKsJs2d

The board runs out AcJc9d2sJh, and Patalano wins the pot with aces full. Khan is eliminated in fourth place, earning $880.

Patalano now has more than 80% of the chips in play with two opponents standing between him and the trophy.

Joseph Patalano – 390,000
Adil Khan – Eliminated in 4th Place ($880)

Event 2: Luis Santoni Eliminated in 5th Place ($640)

Level 15: 2,000/4,000

Joseph Patalano limps from the cutoff, and Adil Khan raises to 18,000 on the button. Luis Santoni defends his big blind, Patalano folds, and it’s heads up to the flop.

It comes Jh8s3s, and Santoni leads all in for just less than 15,000 total. Khan quickly calls with the covering stack, looking for the knockout.

Khan: KdJd8c7c (top two pair)
Santoni: AdQcTcTd (pair of tens, straight draw)

The turn 7s and river Ac do nothing to save Santoni’s tournament life, and he is eliminated in fifth place.

Adil Khan – 77,000 (19 bb)
Luis Santoni – Eliminated in 5th Place ($640)

Event 2: Brad Coultas Eliminated on the Bubble

$240 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry)
Level 15: 2,000/4,000

Brad Coultas (Eliminated)

Luis Santoni limps from middle position, and Robert Melo raises to 11,000 in the cutoff. Brad Coultas calls all in for his last 4,500 in the big blind, Santoni calls the remainder, and there’s heads-up action on the side with Coultas at risk.

The board runs out AhQh8d2hJh, with the two live players checking it all the way down.

“Aces up,” Santoni announces.

“Set,” Melo has him beaten, at least verbally. He tables QsQcJd6h to prove it, showing three queens. Santoni mucks.

Coultas is all in, so his inferior AsJc5d3s is tabled as he stands from his chair. He’s eliminated on the money bubble, and the five remaining players are guaranteed at least $640.

Event 2: Brad Coultas Triples Up on the Bubble, Too

$240 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry)
Level 14: 1,500/3,000

Robert Melo opens to 7,000 in the cutoff, and Joseph Patalano three-bets to 25,500 from the button. Brad Coultas calls all in for his last 6,000 in the big blind, Melo folds, and Coultas is heads up for his tournament life.

Patalano: AhAd7d6d
Coultas: KsTc5c4d

The board runs out KdQh2d6h4h, and Colultas rivers two pair to win the pot. He more than triples up, though he’s still the short stack at the table.

Brad Coultas – 19,500 (7 bb)

Event 2: Marcus Stein Triples Up on the Bubble

$240 Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry)
Level 13: 1,200/2,400

Marcus Stein opens with a pot-sized raise to 8,400 under the gun. Robert Melo calls in the cutoff, and Joseph Patalano calls from the button, making it three-handed to the flop.

It comes 8c4d3d, and Stein moves all in for his last 6,200. Both opponents call, and they check it down through the 6h turn and 3c river.

Stein: AhAdAs4c (aces up)
Melo: QsQd6d5c (queens up)
Patalano: JhJs7s7d (jacks up)

Stein wins the pot with the best two pair, tripling back into contention on the direct money bubble.

Marcus Stein – 47,400 (20 bb)
