Hand #218: Down to just under 11 big blinds, Nicholas Salimbene moved all in from the small blind and Robert Peacock quickly called out of the big blind.
Salimbene was dominated and in need of help to remain in contention, and he picked up some chop outs on the flop. The turn was as bad as it could get for Salimbene, who was drawing to a chop only now and couldn't win the hand outright anymore. A blank on the river let Peacock's rail erupt in celebration and he shook hands with Salimbene before embracing them.
Salimbene was eliminated in 2nd place and takes home $397,908 for his efforts, while Peacock scored his first gold bracelet and a payday of $644,224. A recap of today's action and the event is to follow.
