Di Salvo Ran Out of Time
Level 13: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Giulio Di Salvo was down to 17,500 in chips and was about to be in the big blind the next hand when he jammed his stack from under the gun. Thomas Jakobsen called from one seat over and the rest of the table folded.
Giulio Di Salvo: K♥5♠
Thomas Jakobsen: 8♦8♣
Di Salvo had a live king and other opportunities to improve. However, most of his hope went away after Jakobsen improved to a set on the 2♥8♠3♥ flop. Di Salvo got out of his seat after he was drawing dead on the 7♥ turn and was officially eliminated after the Q♥ river completed the board.
Local hero Mark Vella continues to shine and is the table captain with 200,000 in chips.
Meanwhile, we also just lost WPA advocate Chris Read at another table.
Mark Vella – 200,000
Thomas Jakobsen – 120,000
Giulio Di Salvo – 0
Chris Read – 0
