Event 8: Blain Ovind – 3rd Place ($4,212)

$350 8-Handed Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 23: Blinds 8,000/16,000/2,000 ante

Things were a little less tense when the final table went down to three-handed action and Blain Ovind’s last hand was a quiet one to start.

He mixed it up with Joe Villacci before the 9s3d2d flop when the fuse was lit on the fireworks. All Ovind’s chips ended up in the middle with KxKs against the small pair 6c6s of Villacci.

The turn was a uninspiring 3c but the two-out 6d ended Ovind’s day in 3rd place for $4,212.
