Jonathan Karamalikis moved all in preflop for around 117,000 and Michael Pedley called.
Pedley had Karamalikis dominated as the crowd leaned in to see their hometown boys duke it out. Karamalikis' rail pleaded for a ten, but the flop did not deliver. They then turned their focus toward a chop, which would happen if a deuce hit. "Deuce," they yelled as the dealer burned and put out the . Close but no cigar.
Unfortunately for Karamalikis, the blanked on the river and he was eliminated in second place. Meanwhile Pedley conquered the field, capturing the Rebuy title for the second time in five years, not to mention the $122,670 first-place prize.
