Robert Merulla Eliminated in 15th Place ($18,180)
Nivel 22 : 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Robert Merulla opened to 37,000 and Steve Gross three-bet him to 100,000. This had happened in one of the early hands of play and Merulla had folded. This time, however, he moved all in, and Gross quickly called.
The board ran out . The turn gave Merulla spade outs for a flush, but the river bricked and he was the second player to fall today.
