10th Place: Marko Trapani, Jr. ($41,600)

Marko Trapani, Jr. has been eliminated in 10th place when his [Qc][Jh] failed to improve against the [As][Th] of Ubaid Habib.  Marko was drawing live to a pair when the flop fell [4h][5c][9h], and he even picked up a flush draw when the turn came [5h].  But it was not to be, as the [9c] hit the river.  Ubaid's ace high won the pot, and Marko was sent to the cage to collect his $41,600.

Marko placed two spots higher than his brother Chris's finish in the 2011 WPT Shooting Star.
