Gabriel Rouleau Eliminated in 18th Place ($21,397)

• Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Gabriel Rouleau opened to 36,000 from middle position, Stephen Falcon three-bet to 100,000 right next to him, and when the action folded back to Rouleau, he moved all in for around 300,000. Falcon instantly called.

Rouleau: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Falcon: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

"Ten, give me a ten," Falcon requested as the flop fell {7-Spades}{a-Clubs}{3-Spades}.

"Come on, give me a ten."

The turn was not a ten, rather it was another three; the {3-Hearts}.

"Ten, ten," he continued chanting.

The river was yet another three - the {3-Clubs} - and Falcon fist pumped then slapped the table with excitement. Rouleau quietly gathered his things, and is off to the cage to collect his $21,397.

Frankenberger Finds a Full House

Frederik Jensen made it 34,000 to go from the cutoff. Andy Frankenberger quickly made the call from the button and the two players saw a flop of {J-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{A-Hearts}.

Jensen checked and Frankenberger led out for 55,000. Jensen made the call and the turn came {J-Clubs}. The action checked around and the river brought a third jack when the {J-Diamonds} fell. We missed the exact action on the river, but were able to see Jensen turn over {Q-Spades}{9-Spades}, only to be beat by the jacks full of aces with Frankenberger's {A-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

With this pot, Andy Frankenberger has now become our chip leader with 18 players left.

Lasecki fired out a bet of over 100,000 and Crowe made the call, tabling {K-}{Q-}. Lasecki mucked his cards, allowing Crowe's stack to gain a significant boost.
