5th Place - Iacobellis

$3300 + $200 Championship No Limit Hold'em      

Christian Iacobellis (Rye, NY)

With Sam Bernstein's departure in 6th place, the remaining five players are all twenty-somethings.

Marc Goldman is the youngest at 23.  Josh Mancuso is the oldest at 29.

Marc Goldman (button) raised and Christian Iacobellis moved in from the big blind.

Marc called, showing pocket Jacks.  Christian held pocket 3s.

The board ran out K Q 7 9 8 and Marc's Jacks were good.

Christian Iacobellis finished in 5th place, earning $128,674.

Christian has been playing professionally for about 10 years.  He finished 10th in the 2010 Borgata Poker Open Championship event the year that Dwyte Pilgrim won it all.  He also won three major online tournaments in one day.

When not playing poker, Christian plays professional Roller Hockey for the New England Insanity.

Another level gone and the final four are taking a break.
