Joseph Bartholdi

Rasam Mohammadian began heads-up play with only eight big blinds but wasn’t ready to just give up the title to Joseph Bartholdi without a fight. He caught a couple double up but Bartholdi kept up the pressure until Mahommadian was back under 10 big blinds.

On the final hand of the tournament, Bartholdi dropped in a stack of 100K chips from the button and Mohammadian called at risk for 750,000.

Bartholdi: AhJc
Mohammadian: 9h8d

Mohammadian was behind but drawing live for another double.

“I’m feeling this one,” Mohammadian said. “Right on the flop.”

Despite his confidence, it was Bartholdi improving on the Jd6c3c flop. His paired jack turned into trip jacks on the Jh turn and Mohammadian was drawing dead to the 6h river.

Mohammadian was very happy with his $87,500 for second place and Bartholdi walked to the cage to collect his $125,025 payout.

1st: joseph Bartholdi – $125,025
2nd: Rasam Mohammadian – $87,500

Chiappetta bet 400,000 and Bartholdi called. The turn was 6s, Chiappetta checked, and Bartholdi bet 700,000. Chiappetta check-raised all in for 5,225,000 and Bartholdi snap called.

Barthholdi: AcJh
Chiappetta: Ah7c

Chiappetta flopped top pair but was drawing dead to the top two of Bartholdi for a surprise exit in third place.

Rasam Mohammadian and his eight big blinds celebrated with the rail.
