Patrick Serda was poised to win a huge pot early on this final table after turning the nut straight versus Sebastien Labbe’s smaller straight, until a river card chopped the 270M pot in two. Since then he has seen his chip count get cut in nearly half leading to his elimination hand.
Kevin Rivest opened to 7.5M from utg, and Patrick 3-bet all-in next to act for just shy of 70M. Action folded around to Kevin, who put the Winnipeg pro at risk.
Patrick overcame Ace-King with Ace-Jack earlier today, however this time the board brought him no help, and he was eliminated in 7th place for $35,000.
