Ionel Anton Eliminated In 2nd Place ($428,140)

• Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Ionel Anton

Oleksii Kovalchuk raised it up to 150,000 on the button and Ionel Anton moved all in for about 1,500,000. Kovalchuk insta-called and flipped over {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}. Anton showed {A-Clubs}{6-Spades} and we waited as the camera crew came in to watch the board be dealt.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} to give Kovalchuk a set of sevens but it also gave Ionel an inside straight draw.

The turn came {10-Hearts} and the river came {10-Diamonds} and Kovalchuk gave a fist pump as he took down the bracelet.

Anton earned $428,140 for second place and played well in a long and grueling heads up match.
