John Manzella arrived a half hour late for this final table and then only lasted close to a half hour. After scoring a knockout of Daniel Sewnig, he took a tough beat to lose a decent portion of his stack to Joe ‘Worm’ Palma and then took an even tougher beat to get sent to the rail in 8th place.
That action was picked up with Manzella opening in early position. The table folded to Abraham Korotki, who was in the big blind, and he three-bet, only to see Manzella four-bet shove. Korotki then called, as he was priced in, only to see that he was dominated.
Manzella held to Korotki’s but that advantage didn’t hold for very long, as the board ran out , with Korotki hitting his three-outer on the turn.
It was a rough, up and down day for Manzella, but he’ll make just under $3,000 for his 8th place finish. While he’s heading to the payout cage, Korotki continues to move up the leaderboard, increasing his lead on the rest of this final table.
A complete update of the remaining counts will be posted shortly, as players are just a few minutes from the first break of the day.
