Alvaro Holguin, Day 3 Level 32

Eric Doerr came into Level 32 with 15.625M, a 5M chip advantage over 2nd and an 11.5M chip advantage over 7th. He is now out of the tournament before any other player was eliminated.

Greg Fishberg opened the pot to 500k from the cutoff and was 3-bet all-in to 5.2M by Doerr on the button. Holguin was in the small blind and 4-bet moved all-in having both players covered. Fishberg got out of the way and Doerr would be at risk.

Holguin A♣A♥ vs Doerr A♠5♣ Pot: ~11M

Board: 2♠9♣2♣7♣Q♠

Holguin holds easily and now is working with ~15.5M. Doerr wound up picking a bad spot to make a move in the end but it was a series of hands that led to his demise over the course of Level 32.

Doerr finishes in 7th place for $11,599.
