CPPT Main Event: 6th Place - David Grandieri ($18,054)

CPPT Main Event (Day 2)
Level 28 (25,000/50,000/5,000)
Total Entrants: 282
Players Remaining: 5
Chip Average: 1,700,000
David Grandieri (Danbury, CT)
Jay Feingold didn't show much emotion after his pocket queens were cracked by David Grandieri earlier in Level 27 and he didn't show much emotion when his pocket queens held up against Grandieri in a blind versus blind encounter that saw Grandieri open shove from the small blind and Feingold snap in the big blind.

Grandieri has time after time been run over by Feingold at this Final Table and this would be the last time as his [Ac][8s] could not find enough to double him up as the board ran out [3d][8h][6s][4h][2c].

The table joked slightly that Grandieri's deuce/three from last hand would have been good again but there wasn't much laughing from Grandieri's corner as he just couldn't avoid running into Feingold's "it" here in the Card Player Poker Tour Main Event.

Grandieri was one of the more memorable players from this CPPT Main Event as he made what we can honestly say was one of the better calls we've ever seen on Day 2 and played nearly flawlessly for the later portions of that day and the first few levels of today.

He just couldn't get much traction at this Final Table though and would be eliminated in 6th place, earning just over $18,000 for his deep run.

There are just over 35 minutes remaining in Level 28, with Frank Sgambato working with just over a 10 big blind stack and he is now the new "player to watch" as he'll need to double up to get back into this Main Event.
