Maria Ho Eliminated in 3rd Place ($188,875)


Maria Ho raised it up from the button, and Alex Foxen reraised it to 210,000. Nick Petrangelo folded his big blind, and after a few moments of though, Ho moved all in. Foxen quickly called, and he was a big favorite to get to heads up play. 

Ho: [Ah][5h]
Foxen: [9h][9c]

The flop of [10s][7h][4c] brought some backdoor possibilities for Ho, but the [Qd] turn meant that an ace and an ace only would do for Ho now. The [10d] came instead, giving Foxen the lead, and getting us to heads up play.

Foxen has a dominating lead right now, with 4.4 million to the 590,000 of Petrangelo. 

There will be a brief delay while the set is made for heads up play.
