Daniel Santoro

Daniel Weinman moved all in from the small blind and Daniel Santoro called from the big blind.

Santoro was the at-risk player for his last 610,000. He showed KsQh and needed to improve against Weinman’s Ah4h.

The flop was Qs8c2s and most of Michael Mizrachi’s rail groaned as Santoro took the lead. The turn was the 7c and most of the rail was shouting for an ace, rooting for Mizrachi to get heads-up with Weinman.

The river was the Ac and Weinman hit his ace to eliminate Santoro in third place. Santoro earned $133,525 for his third place finish, while Weinman took a massive five-to-one chip lead into heads-up play vs. Mizrachi.

Daniel Weinman – 2,750,000 (92 bb)
