LAPT7: Ribeiro, Pardo and Quezada hit the rail, 41 remain
With Carolina Dupre's 73rd-place elimination last night, Andrea Ribeiro was officially the last woman standing in the LAPT Brazil. She came into play today with a top-ten stack but ran into trouble early and was ultimately eliminated in 54th place when her K♠J♦ did not improve vs. Angel Guillen's K♦Q♣.
Also departing this level was Rodrigo Quezada, who was the chip leader midway through Day 2. In a three-way preflop all-in, Quezada's K♦J♦ was up against Camilo Posada's pocket tens and Pedro Soares's pocket sevens. Soares flopped a set of sevens and Quezada hit the rail in 47th place.
Rafael Pardo has two LAPT final tables to his credit-- he finished seventh in the tour's first-ever event in Rio de Janiero and followed it up with another seventh-place finish in his native Colombia in Season 4. However, his hopes for a third were crushed when he moved all-in for his last 205,000 with Q♥8♣ and Victor Sbrissa called with A♣T♣. Pardo got no help on the board and ended his run in 43rd place.
As Level 23 ticks away, 41 players remain in the hunt.
