Event 9: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry

Desmond Portano Eliminated in 22nd Place ($22,885)

Another hand, another elimination. This time it was Desmond Portano as he finds himself on the rail in 22nd place.

The end of Portano's tournament began when Stephen Reynolds opened the pot from middle position. Portano was in the big blind when he three-bet shoved his small stack. Reynolds instantly made the call and the two players turned their hands over.

Portano: {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Reynolds: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

It was bleak times for Portano and they wouldn't get any better as the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs}. For his effort, Portano turned his $1,500 investment into $22,885.
