CPPT Event 7: 7th & 8th Place - David Papa and Adrian Scarpa

Event 7 (Day 2)
Level 27 (20,000/40,000/5,000)
Total Entries: 414
Players Remaining: 6
Chip Average: 1,400,000
David Papa (North Haven, CT)
It's been an interesting last few hands as two players have doubled up over the chip average leaving two players with 5,000 chips and 10,000 chips after their massive losses, with those two players being eliminated in 7th and 8th place, but not before David Papa made a profitable pay jump over Adrian Scarpa.

The first hand was picked up pre-flop with John Vohs moving all-in from middle position and Papa snap calling when the action folded to him in the small blind.

Vohs would slam down [Kh][Ks] and Papa would need some help, holding [Ac][Js].

The board would run out clean for the pocket Kings and Papa would be left with just 5,000 chips, enough for one ante, as he barely had Vohs covered.

Everyone thought Papa would be the next player to go, but he'd double up in back-to-back hands, increasing his stack to over the 100,000 mark.

He finally took a hand off, which allowed Scarpa to open the button to 85,000.

Adrian Scarpa (Manchester, CT)
Chris Leong would then move all-in from the small blind for just over 600,000 and Scarpa would snap call, holding a dominant [Ac][Qc] to Leong's [Kd][Qh].

The board would run out [Ks][Jc][5h][8d][6s] and when the chips were counted it would be Scarpa having Leong slightly covered, getting 10,000 chips back as a rebate from the brutal Final Table "suck out".

On the very next hand, Scarpa would be eliminated in 8th place, with Papa following on the very next hand, with Leong's [Ac][8h] besting Papa's [As][3c].

Papa wouldn't be that disappointed as he'd earn an extra $1,000 by outlasting Scarpa, as Scarpa earned $3,700 for his 8th place finish and Papa would earn just over $4,700.

Chris Leong, after notching two massive knockouts, is sitting close to 1,500,000 chips.
