Sam Capra Eliminated in 3rd Place ($50,000 USD)

There came a time when Sam Capra had to stop folding and stick his chips in the middle. Unfortunately for him, he did it when an opponent had flopped trips.

Capra raised to 55,000 from the button and both his opponents called from the blinds. The flop came down {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and Capra shoved for his remaining 290,000 when the action was on him. Michal Polchlopek folded from the small blind but Ross Parkhill called from the big blind.

Carpra: {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for an open-ended straight draw.
Parkhill: {9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} for trip nines.

The board ran out {j-Clubs}{a-Clubs} to see Parkhill's hand hold. The players are taking a ten minute break before they begin their heads-up battle. We be back then and verify their chip counts.
