Bruno Politano Eliminated in 8th Place ($947,077)

[user80015] • Level 37: 300,000-600,000, 75,000 ante
Bruno Politano - 8th Place

Hand #100: Bruno Politano had the button, and when the action folded to him, he moved all in for 8.1 million. The action passed to Felix Stephensen in the big blind and he made the call.

Politano: {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Stephensen: {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}

With Politano racing for his tournament life, the dealer spread a {2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop to keep the Brazilian ahead.

The turn of the {K-Clubs} on the turn changed little, and with nearly everyone in the Penn & Teller theatre standing to sweat the river card, the dealer would deliver the {9-Hearts} on the river to send Politano to the rail in 8th place for a $947,077 payday.

As Stephensen scooped the pot to climb to over 27 million, Politano's rail continued to chant, cheer and clap for their countryman as he embraced all the support with a big smile on his face before exiting the stage.
