Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 4,000 ante
Jim Anderson raises to 105,000 on the button and then Joe Dimartino reraises all in for 600,000 on the small blind. Their cards:
Anderson wins the hand to grow his stack to over 1.5 million and Dimartino is eliminated in 13th place.
Jim Anderson - 1,575,000 (31 bb)

Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 4,000 ante
Joe Dimartino is all in preflop for 570,000 from the small blind and Adam Cook calls after spending some time in the tank on the big blind. Their cards:
Dimartino doubles up again to survive and Cook is down to 1.8 million after the hand.
Joe Dimartino - 1,120,000 (28 bb)
Adam Cook - 1,800,000 (45 bb)
Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 3,000 ante
Joe Dimartino moves all in preflop for close to 500,000 from the cutoff and Arkadiy Tsinis calls on the small blind to put Dimartino's tournament life at risk. Their cards:
Dimartino makes a straight on the river to win the hand and double up close to a million. Tsinis loses the hand and his stack is very low with less than 10 big blinds.
Joe Dimartino - 945,000 (31 bb)
Arkadiy Tsinis - 265,000 (8 bb)
Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Matthew Salsberg raises from the cutoff to 53,000, Joe DiMartino reraises from the big blind to 145,000, and Salsberg tanks for a while before reraising to 275,000. DiMartino folds, and Salsberg takes the pot.
Matthew Salsberg - 1,265,000 (52 bb)
Joe DiMartino - 524,000 (21 bb)
Salsberg is the last remaining WPT winner in the field.
Level 24: 10,000-20,000, 2,000 ante
Mike Shklover raises to 45,000 from UTG+2 and Joe Dimartino three-bets all in for 337,000 from the small blind. Chris Reslock instantly pushes his stack into the middle from the big blind (about 500,000) and Shklover calls even quicker.
The board runs out KQ9T3 as DiMartino makes Broadway on the turn to triple up and win the main pot. Shklover, though, wins the side pot with aces and eliminates Reslock.
Joe DiMartino - 1,020,000 (51 bb)
Mike Shklover - 420,000 (21 bb)
Chris Reslock - Out in 26th Place ($14,933)
Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante
With the board showing Q9310 on the turn, Mike Meskin moves all in from the cutoff for 182,000, and Joe Dimartino asks for a count before he calls with QJ (pair of queens, open-ended straight draw).
Meskin turns over AK for a gutshot straight draw with a club flush draw, and he'll need to improve to stay alive.
The river card pairs the board with the 9, and Dimartino wins the pot with two pair, queens and nines, to eliminate Meskin from the tournament.
Joe Dimartino - 655,000 (54 bb)
Mike Meskin - Out in 45th Place ($11,615)
Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 300 ante
In the last hand of the previous level, Marsha Wolak raises from the button to 6,000, Joe Dimartino reraises from the small blind to 13,000, and Wolak calls. The flop comes A107, Dimartino bets 14,500, and Wolak calls.
The turn card is the K, Dimartino bets 26,000, and Wolak moves all in for 152,600. Dimartino tanks for a long time into the break, and a crowd gathers to wait for his decision.
Dimartino eventually folds K10 face up -- two pair -- and Wolak takes the pot.
Several players at the table plead with Wolak to show her cards, but she slides them face down toward the muck as she pulls in a nice pot.
Marsha Wolak - 250,000 (83 bb)
Joe Dimartino - 350,000 (116 bb)
