Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Bardah Eliminates Almeida


Renato Almeida (no relation to Tony Almeida) moved all in for 148,000 from middle position after Patrick Hartnett limped in from under the gun. Action folded to Ronnie "Ronasty" Bardah in the big blind and he asked for a count. After getting the count verified, Bardah called. Hartnett folded, claiming that he was folded the best hand.

Bardah tabled the {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} so unless Hartnett folded aces, he didn't fold the best hand. The at-risk Almeida held the {K-Spades}{9-Spades}.

The board ran out {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Bardah won scooped the chips as the ESPN cameras rolled. Almeida shook hands with Bardah and hit the rail as he was eliminated.

Bardah's now got about 1.35 million in chips.
