Steve Ricchini, Day 3 Level 29

There had been a fairly long stretch of play since the last elimination until Ricchini managed to take out the shortest stack. He opened with a shove for 2.2M (22 big blinds) in the hijack. Rob Gerrard was on the button and called for less (830k) putting himself at risk. The blinds folded out and it was time for a run-out.

Ricchini A♣K♦ vs Gerrard A♦10♣ Pot: 1.915M

Board: 6♦8♠5♣Q♣6♣

Ricchini holds and collects the pot. Gerrard is eliminated in 14th place for $4,222.
