Event 9 $250+$30 Deepest Stack NLH
Level 34: (150,000/300,000/40,000)
Total Entries: 860
Players Remaining: 2
Edgard Figueroa and Nick Pupillo had nearly identical stacks and they were all in preflop for just over 8,000,000 each. Figueroa’s [kc][ks] were dominating the [10c][10s] of Pupillo.
Sure enough the vicious cycle of bad beats at the Event 9 final table continued when the dealer fanned the [qs][10h][8h] flop. Pupillo spikes one of the two remaining tens in the deck to take the lead. The turn [4s] and river [4h] improve Pupillo to a full house and Figueroa is eliminated in 3rd place earning $17,101 for his efforts.
Nick Pupillo- 16,600,000
