Stuart Greenbaum

After on early open, Stuart Greenbaum raised to 600,000 and Cosmin Joldis called. Richard Zipes shipped in for 1,625,000 and Greenbaum had questions.

“If we both go out (himself and Zipes), do I get 3rd?” Greenbaum asked.

When he heard the answer was yes based on chip stacks, Greenbaum moved all in himself for 3,750,000. Joldis stuck around with a chance to knock two players out.

Joldis: QsQh
Zipes: AcKd
Greenbaum: JdJh

Joldis had a dominant hand again Greenbaum and a flip with Zipes. With everyone on their feet, the dealer ran the board 6h6d3c4hTs and Joldis held with the queens.

Greenbaum was awarded $58,985 for third place while the 82 year-old Zipes earned $43,880.

“Oh boy,” was about all Zipes could say about the development.

Greenbaum: AhKs
Wandling: QdJd

Wandling was behind but two suited live cards to try to catch. Then it was Greenbaum improving on the Ad9c8h flop with his paired ace. The 7d turn gave Wandling 12 rivers out, diamonds and a gutshot, but he missed the Qc river to go out in fifth place for $33,045.
