Event 16: 28th Place - Costa

$2500 + $200 Championship NL 

Play resumed after the break with blinds of 4k/8k and 500 antes.

On a flop of K 3 2, Ruben Costa (bb) checked.  Jonathan Benster (button) bet 55,500.  After some thought, Ruben called.

Turn was a Queen.  Again Ruben checked.  Jonathan bet 1115k.  Ruben tanked, then moved all-in.  Jonathan called.  Ruben showed pocket Tens.  Jonathan had him crushed with KQ for top two pair.

Only a Ten on the river would save Ruben.  Alas, it was a 2.

Ruben Costa (Whitestone, NY) finished in 28th place, earning $4,700.

The next nine players to depart will earn $5,875.

Table four was broken and those players dispersed to the remaining three.  27 players remain.
