Rutter Dispatches Manolea

Luciana Manolea

There aren't many women left in the field, and we just lost on of them.

It happened when Stuart Rutter opened for 6,600 from the cutoff and was met with an all-in three-bet for 20,000 from Romania's Luciana Manolea. The big blind got out of the way and Rutter made a hesitant call.

Rutter: {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Manolea: {A-Spades}{9-Spades}

Manolea got it in good, but a flash of pure disappointment crossed her face when the {J-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop paired Rutter. Neither the {2-Hearts} turn nor {3-Spades} river would help Manolea, and the Italian beauty made an early exit here on Day 3.
