Funaro, meanwhile, still holding on, found himself all in on fourth street in Stud when three bets went in between him, Ross Hoffmann and Ernie Vidal. Hoffmann and Vidal traded the lead after Ernie bet out on fifth, but ultimately it came down to Ross catching pure on the end.
With two spades showing, Ross needed to improve over what looked like at least two pair on a straightening runout for Vidal.
Hoffman got there, and turned over the nut flush, and eyes turned to the all-in player. Funaro missed his own better flush draw for the main, leaving Ross with a big stack nearing 50,000.
“You got it on on the river!” cried out Ernie in frustration, who knew where he was at.
Meanwhile, Roland Israelashvili continues in command as the exits mount.
