Event 40 Champion Carlos Chadha Villamarin

Carlos Chadha Villamarin raised from the small blind to 250,000, Michael Graffeo reraised from the big blind to 800,000, and Villamarin thought for a while before he moved all in.

Graffeo quickly called all in for 2,630,000 with JdJc, and needed it to hold to stay alive against Villamarin’s AcKs.

The board came 10h9s8h5hAh — Graffeo flopped an open-ended straight draw, but Villamarin spiked an ace on the river to win the pot — and the title, the trophy, and $71,150.

Graffeo finished as the runner-up, earning $48,600.

Stay tuned for a recap, which will be posted later this afternoon.
