Nicholas Salimbene

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.

Nicholas Salimbene: {K-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Robert Peacock: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

Salimbene was dominated and in need of help to remain in contention, and he picked up some chop outs on the {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop. The {K-Spades} 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 {9-Hearts} 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.
