Event 7: Luis Pires Eliminated In 7th Place ($4,998)

$150 No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 34: Blinds 150,000/300,000/50,000 ante

After a dramatic river card to save him once, Luis Pires couldn’t pull it off twice.

Pires ran into Ross Fischer making the call.  Fisher, having tripled up with quad fives earlier, was in great shape when the cards were turned up.

Pires: QhJc
Fischer: KhKc

With his suits dominated, Pires was going to need a ton of help. He did get a small dose of hope after a Ah9c7cQc board but the As ended Pires’ tourney with a 7th place finish good for $4,998.
