Dimitar Danchev - 2nd place

Hand #209: Dimitar Danchev raised to 50,000 from the button only to have Alex Bolotin three-bet to 150,000 from the big blind. Danchev paused for a few moments before making the call as the dealer spread a {3-Spades}{K-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop.

Bolotin continued for 175,000 with Danchev make a rather quick call as the {6-Clubs} landed on the turn and Bolotin checked to the Bulgarian. Danchev paused, and then cut out a bet of 236,000 which Bolotin called before the dealer delivered the {5-Diamonds} on the river and Bolotin checked once more.

Danchev looked down at his stack, and then announced he was all in with Bolotin quickly asking for a count. The dealer cut down Danchev's stack and it amounted to 594,000. Bolotin removed his hood and sunglasses went deep into the tank for close to two minutes before announcing a call.

Danchev flipped over his {Q-Spades}{J-Hearts} for a queen-high bluff as Bolotin tabled his {K-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for top pair and the bracelet as Danchev was left to take 2nd place and the $160,410 in prizemoney.
