Nick Palma lost a sizable pot to Michael McNeil with top pair against top two pair and then was left with about 130,000.

The next hand, he moved all in from the small blind for his last 130,000 and Michael Aron called from the big blind. Aron showed KdKs and had Palma’s KcJh in bad shape.

There wasn’t much of a sweat as the board ran out 8h4c3cQdJs and Palma hit the rail in third place, leaving Aron heads-up with Michael McNeil for the title.

Michael Aron – 330,000 (33 bb)
Nick Palma – Eliminated
