John DePersio

For John DePersio, a flopped set of threes was no good against the rivered set of fours of Joseph Duchman. The hand left DePersio with about 600,000 and he hung around as a short stack for a few orbits.

On his final hand, he open shoved again holding pocketing threes. Bryan Emory called with qxjx in the big blind and won the race versus the short stack. DePersio was eliminated in seventh place earning $8,246.

Lazaro Dubrocq

Emory: acks

A jdts8c flop gave Emory straight outs to go with his over cards. The turn kc brought Broadway home and left Dubrocq drawing dead. The river was the 6c making his eighth-place finish official.
