At the end of the previous post, we asked, “Can Raffaello Locatelli make the full comeback from less than a single big blind?” (Spoiler Alert: No.)
After he bounced back a bit to 225,000, Locatelli skipped the next two hands before he found himself in the big blind, with the big-blind ante.
Barry Weprin raised from the button to 50,000, Brian Hastings called from the small blind, and Locatelli moved all in for about 205,000. Weprin called, and Hastings folded.
Locatelli turned over , but he needed to improve to stay alive against Weprin’s .
The board came , and the pocket kings held up for Weprin to win the pot and eliminate Locatelli in fifth place.
Barry Weprin – 1,750,000 (88 bb)
Raffaello Locatelli – Eliminated in 5th Place ($8,380)
