Average Stack: 1,830,000


11th Place – Luke Collina ($4,390)


12th Place – David Olshan ($4,390)

The rush out the door at the final two tables is at a relative end in this level with the final table now upon. David Olshan and Luke Collina were the latest victims of Level 24 and will have to settle for a double-digit finish.

Olshan was the first to go and lost a flip to Michael Hager to secure his exit. Olshan opened to 100,000 in the cutoff and Hager moved all-in for effectively 700,000 from the big blind. Olshan called with 10♠10 and needed to flip better than Hager’s AK♠ to stay alive. The K hit the flop and Olshan could not catch up before exiting in 12th.

Collina lost his place at the final table in one massive hand against Michael Gagliano, that put the latter at his peak for the event. Gagliano opened under the gun to 80,000 and Joe Palma flatted on the button. Collina moved all-in for 1,020,000 in the big blind and Gagliano called. Palma folded, and Gagliano showed JJ♣ which had the 66♠ of Collina dominated.

The J86♣ flop was a needle to Collina, and after missing his one-outer was down to less than five big blinds. Gagliano finished the job a hand later and Collina is out in his first deep SugarHouse run. He wants to thank his dad for his support, who has been following all day.

The final table draw will be posted shortly.
