4th Place – Peter Miranda ($19,643)

Shortly after the four remaining players failed to come to an agreement, Peter Miranda was at risk in a pot worth nearly half of the chips in play against Abe Faroni.

Miranda limped in from under the gun and Joe Palma put in a raise to 330,000 on the button. Faroni boosted the action up to 900,000 in the small blind and after Michael Hager folded his big blind, Miranda moved all-in for 3,385,000 total. Palma wasn’t pleased with having to do it but folded, and Faroni was then put to a big decision.

With large pay jumps in play along with the title to think about, Faroni had plenty to tank over. After two minutes of thought, Faroni called with AK and was flipping against the QQ♠ of Miranda.

The K♠86♠ flop put Faroni ahead and added to his lead on the A♣ turn. Needing a queen on the river, Miranda got the 2♠ instead. Miranda had a great run through this event and will earn over $19,000 for his finish. Faroni now holds half of the chips in play with Level 29 near a close.
