Stephen Diamantas

Jean LeBlond raised to 25,000 from under the gun and Andrew Blake called on the button. David Jackson called from the small blind and Stephen Diamantas defended his big blind.

The flop was 8h4h3d and Jackson checked. Diamantas moved all in for 111,000 and LeBlond moved all in for about 300,000. Blake and Jackson both quickly folded.

Diamantas showed 8s6c, but needed to fade a lot of cards against LeBlond’s Ah9h.

The turn was the 9d, giving LeBlond a bigger pair and the lead, and the river was the Jd. LeBlond wins the pot with a pair of nines and Diamantas was eliminated in fourth place. Diamantas took home $7,741 for his finish and LeBlond took the chip lead into three-handed play.

Jean LeBlond – 510,000 (51 bb)
Stephen Diamantas – Eliminated
