When the players returned from the break prior to level 32, Raymond Carter had the chip lead, but after a series of difficult hands, he found himself at the bottom of the chip table when the decisive hand came along.
The hand was a blind-on-blind with Julio Cacoilo opening with a raise to 575K, which was met by Ray’s shove for just over 3.5M in chips. Julio made the call and the hands were exposed.
Domination! The community cards held no miracles for Ray: and Julio was on his way to heads up play while Ray was eliminated in 3rd place for $82,670.
3rd place: Raymond Carter, $82,670
