$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry) $50,000 Guaranteed | Payouts Level 28: 30,000/60,000 with a 5,000 ante Players Remaining: 3 of 779
Cesar Fuentes opened to 155,000 from under the gun and Francis Margaglione called in the big blind to the flop. Margaglione checked, Fuentes bet 170,000 and Margaglion check-raised enough to put him all in. Fuentes quickly called and Margaglione was not happy to see the hands.
Margaglione had top pair plus a gutshot draw against Fuentes over pair and he found the turn to fill the gap. Fuentes was unable to repeat as champion in this event for a fourth place finish is a fine follow up.
“You got me again Francis,” Fuentes joked as he waited to cash out.
Francis Margaglione – 2,250,000 (38 bb) Cesar Fuentes – Eliminated in 4th place ($6,544)

Cesar Fuentes opened to 100,000 from the cutoff. Gui Van called on the button along with Hollander Preap in the big blind to the flop.
Preap moved all in for ~450,000 to get a fold from Fuentes and a shrug-call from Van.
Van was ahead with top pair against Preap’s flush draw/gutshot draw. The turn and river were no help to Preap and he was sent out in fifth place. Van stacked up more than half of the chips in play with four remaining.
Gui Van – 4,325,000 (87 bb) Hollander Preap – Eliminated in 5th place ($4,721)
