Folescu Runs Into Aces, Busts

Cristian Folescu (Day 2) - Eliminated

Cristian Folescu opened to 60,000 in early position, and Alex Fitzgerald three-bet to 138,000 on his direct left. The action folded back to Folescu, who went into the tank. He then moved all in for 1 million chips, and Fitzgerald looked back at his cards to make sure they hadn't changed, then called.

Folescu: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Fitzgerald: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}

The {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} was pretty awful for Folescu, and the {j-Diamonds} on the turn took away his backdoor chop outs. The {6-Clubs} on the river ended the hand, and Folescu's 2012 PCA Main Event.

Fitzgerald is now well over 2 million chips, and battling for the chip lead.
