Pavlin Karakikov

Right before the first break, action folded to Pavlin Karakikov on the button. He moved all in for 1,350,000, and Jesse Lonis called in the big blind.

Lonis: QcQh
Karakikov: Ks7s

Karakikov ran into a monster and Lonis improved to a set of queens on the Qs8s2c flop. Karakikov had a spade draw and got there on the Ts turn. His joy was short-lived when Lonis made a full house queens full of eights on the 8d river to send him out.

Jesse Lonis – 9,350,000 (75 bb)
Pavlin Karakikov – Eliminated in 14th place ($57,000)
