While Luiz Duarte built his stack after the break, Andre Bryan wasn’t so lucky. He was down to 2,150,000 and moved all in after Duarte opened to 250,000 and Valencia called. Duarte folded to the shove but Valencia quickly called.
Bryan needed help and caught an open-ended straight draw on the flop. But that was as close as the Poker Room favorite would get as the turn and river finished his tournament in third place.
Aaron Valencia – 12,425,000 (99 bb)
Andre Bryan – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($26,100)
