Not the Best Blind Level for Leinarts
Level 10: 1,000/2,000 (2,000)
Rick Leinarts was able to hang on for a bit of time after earlier this blind level losing most of his stack in a massive pot of more than 200,000 in chips against queens. He was able to hang on for around 15 minutes before his short stack of less than eight big blinds was at risk against Dario Barone.
Rick Leinarts: A♥2♠
Dario Barone: 9♠8♠
It was more or less a flip situation with Leinarts for a second time having better equity in the hand. Against a different hand, he may have doubled his stack instead of hitting the rail after improving to two pair on the 10♥K♠3♠2♦A♠ board.
However, this same board improved Barone to a flush to win the hand and eliminate Leinarts.
Dario Barone – 240,000
Rick Leinarts – 0
