In what is a rare site this late in a tournament, we had three players limp in for 6,000 before it got around to Marco Traniello in the small blind. He also called, and the big blind check his option. Five players saw the dealer fan out a flop of , and Traniello wasted little time in sliding in the rest of his stack, about 25,000 in total. No one had a hand good enough to call with, and Traniello collected the chips, upping his stack to 56,000.
It's been a good level so far for Traniello, as he came back from dinner with just three big blinds. He's still a short stack, but with one more double up, he will be back above water.
