Paul Balzano

Paul Balzano open-shoved under the gun for 1,150,000. It was on Josh Rittenberg on the button and he called. Next up was Josh Beckley in the small blind and he called, too. Edgar Varas folded his option and Balzano was at risk versus two players.

Beckley and Rittenberg checked down the 4h3c2c2d flop and turn. The river fell the Js and Beckley lead for 950,000. Rittenberg folded and Beckley turned over AcJc for a rivered pair of jacks. Balzano’s Kh5h was no good and he was eliminated in fourth place.
