Francis Margaglione

Gui Van opened to 225,000 from the button, Joseph Ritzie called in the small blind, and Francis Margaglione moved all in from the big.

Van released and Ritzie asked for a count. Margaglione’s all in was for 1,250,000 and Ritzie called.

Ritzie: [ks][qd]
Margaglione: [kd][td]

Ritzie was dominating then hit the [qs][4s][2d] flop. The [5d] turn caused Ritzie to exclaim a few words, but the [2h] river kept him in the lead to send Margaglione out in third place, unable to take home a trophy in a third straight SHRPO series.

Joseph Ritzie – 5,255,000 (66 bb)
Francis Margaglione – Eliminated in 3rd place ($9,935)
