James Sebastiano
James Sebastiano

James Sebastiano moved all in from the button for 64,000, Kevin Pham called from the small blind, and Carlos Bermudez called from the big blind. Any further betting would create a side pot.

Both players checked to the river on a board of AhQd6c2sJh. Pham checked in the dark, Bermudez bet 75,000, and Pham quickly folded.

Sebastiano showed KhQs for a pair of queens, but Bermudez turned over AcJd to win the pot with two pair, aces and jacks, eliminating Sebastiano in fourth place.

Since this is a bounty tournament, Bermudez earned $200 for the knockout.

Carlos Bermudez  –  700,000  (58 bb)
James Sebastiano  –  Eliminated in 4th Place  ($2,300)

With three players remaining, the average chip stack is around 567,000 (47 big blinds), and the remaining players are guaranteed at least $3,400 each.
