Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Marafioti's Wheel Ends Billirakis' Day

• Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Despite the confusion earlier over the chip stacks, Matt Marafioti hung on to knock Steve Billirakis out of the tournament. Marafioti opened for 48,000 on the button and Billirakis moved all in. Marafioti called and tabled {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} and was up against Billirakis' {8-Diamonds} {8-Clubs}.

With all the chips in the middle the board ran {K-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} {5-Clubs} {2-Spades}. Marafioti made a straight and spoiled Billirakis' tournament run.
