Joseph Bartholdi opened to 125,000 from middle position, H Michael Borovetz called from the hijack, and Carlos Bermudez moved all in for 700,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds folded, Bartholdi moved out a big stack of 100K chips to get a fold from Borovetz.
Bermudez was in trouble with the smaller pair but saw a brief glimpse of hope when everyone saw the in the window. Unfortunately for Bermudez, it was followed by a nine on the flop. The table went nuts and Bermudez could only smile as the turn and river finished the board.
Bermudez shook hands with the rest of the table and collected his payout. A great week for Bermudez who finished in the top spot as our champ in the $600 Deeper Stack earlier this week.
Joseph Bartholdi – 9,640,000 (161 bb)
Carlos Bermudez – Eliminated in 9th Place ($12,775)
