James Pisano

After the final three players agreed to a three-way chop of the remaining $33,000 prize pool, James Pisano was quickly all-in and at risk. He admitted that he was “fine going out wherever” and while Travis Hartshorn made it clear he wanted the trophy, Hartshorn couldn’t win a flip to save his life.

Pisano doubled through him twice to get back down up to the 2,000,000 chip mark and then a few hands later, Pisano sent those chips back. The two swapped all-in victories a few times while Richard Finberg sat and watched and eventually, Pisano hit the rail in 3rd place.

The final three players will each take home $10,000 and Travis Hartshorn and Richard Finberg are now heads up for the Event 30 title, with $10,000 locked up. They’re playing for the PPO trophy and an additional $3,000.
