Jeff Conine Charity Poker Classic / Charity Series of Poker 
Level 18: 20,000/40,000 with a 40,000 big-blind ante
Players Remaining: 8 of 382

In the first hand at the 10-handed final table, there was a three-way all-in situation. These were their cards, in descending order of chip counts:

Tim Reilly:  6d6c
Julio Marines:  10s9c
Wilson Dondo:  Ac7s

The board came 7c6s2c3hKd, and Reilly flopped a set of sixes to win the entire pot and eliminate both players. Since Dondo had fewer chips at the start of the hand, he busted in 10th place, while Marines went out in 9th place.

Tim Reilly  –  720,000  (18 bb)
Julio Marines  –  Eliminated in 9th Place  ($650 + Rock Spa Package)
Wilson Dondo  –  Eliminated in 10th Place  ($600 + Rock Spa Package)

Ninth-place finisher Julio Marines was trying to become the second player in two days to win back-to-back events here at SHRPO, after winning Event #15 ($1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max) late last night. Marines is a poker dealer from Weslaco, Texas, and he just returned to tournament poker after a hiatus of several years.

10th-place finisher Wilson Dondo is a business owner here in Miami, and according to him, this is his first time playing poker. Even though this is technically a min-cash, it’ll be tough to top finishing 10th in a field of 382 players the second time he plays poker.
