Eric Piderit

Eric Piderit began heads-up play with about a 3:1 chip lead, but Joseph Buonodono battled back to take a slight lead before the big confrontation took place.

Following a flop of Qh4d3s, Piderit was all in for 1,370,000 with 6d4s against Buonodono with KhQd.

The 5d turn and 2d river completed the board, giving Piderit a six-high straight to win the pot and double up.

Down to 30,000, Buonodono was all in the following hand with Qc4s against Piderit’s 10h6s.

The board ran out 10d4d2h8cKs, giving Piderit a pair of tens to earn the outright victory. Buonodono receives $12,110 for his runner-up performance.

A recap of the event will be posted later tonight.
