Greg Nerenberg, Day 3 Level 30

It took just over two hours to eliminate a 2nd player from the Final Table and it was short-stack Chris McNally who would hit the rail.

Greg Nerenberg opened from middle position to 275k. Action folded to Chris McNally on the button who moved all-in for 1.135M more. The blinds got out of the way and Nerenberg made the call to put McNally at risk.

Nerenberg 6♠6♣ vs McNally A♠2♥ Pot: 3.2M

Board: 5♥8♠6♥10♣9♦

Nerenberg flops a set to leave McNally well behind. The turn brought no help and McNally would be drawing dead.

Chris McNally is eliminated in 9th place for $9,678.
