Hand #44: Bonomo Gets Some Back

• Level 4: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Hand #44 Bonomo limped in and Radoja checked his option, bringing a flop of {k-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} to the table. Radoja check-raised Bonomo's flop bet of 30,000, making it 72,000 to play, and Radoja came along. On the {8-Hearts} turn, Radoja led out for 86,000 and Bonomo called to see the {q-Clubs} fall on the river. Both players checked down and Bonomo's {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} was good enough to beat Radoja's {7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}.

Ben Sulsky - 3rd Place

Hand #41: Don Nguyen raised to 60,000 on the button, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky three-bet to 145,000, Nguyen pushed out what looked like 800,000 in chips, and Sulsky moved all in for 935,000.

"Let's go!" Sulsky exclaimed.

Nguyen called, and the cards went on their backs.

Nguyen: {8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Sulsky: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The {k-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop changed little, and the {j-Spades} turned, giving Sulsky a pair of jacks. Nguyen could still win with a ten on the river for a straight, and low and behold the {10-Hearts} spiked on the felt to end Sulsky's run in the Heads-Up Championship.

He will go home with $110,485, his largest WSOP cash to date, while Nguyen will play the winner of the Justin Bonomo/Mark Radoja match in the finals and is now guaranteed at least $204,648.

River: {3-Hearts}

The board ran out clean for Radoja's hand, and with a pair of sevens he doubled back into contention.
