Monday, November 7, 2011 : GIANNETTI BUSTS OUT OF WORLD SERIES OF POKER FINAL TABLE (Update)
Fourth place finish for Las Vegas pro after run-in with Ben Lamb
Now there are three….Pius Heinz, Martin Stasko and Ben Lamb were bagging up their chips late Sunday night at the World Series of Poker after officials called a halt to the day's action when Matt Giannetti was eliminated in fourth place just before 11pm PST.
The young Las Vegas pro had the button and moved all in for 12 million against Ben Lamb. To the disappointment of a vociferous gang of supporters it didn't work out for Giannetti and his tournament came to an end on hand 178, when Lamb produced quad kings, showing Giannetti the exit and leaving just three players to return to the felt tomorrow.
Giannetti’s fourth place finish earned him $3,012,700.
The unofficial chip counts after 10.5 hours of play are:
Pius Heinz (Germany) 107,800,000
Ben Lamb (USA) 55,400,000
Martin Staszko (Czech Republic) 42,700,000
