Boutros Nadim

Hand #182: Boutros Nadim peeled {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} and limped, hoping to get action from Justin Bonomo. He got it indeed as Bonomo looked down at nothing less than the {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}. Bonomo raised it up to 360,000, Nadim fired back with an 820,000 three-bet and then called off Bonomo's all-in.

The {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts} runout stayed firmly at Bonomo's side as he climbed back to a big lead.

Hand #183: Bonomo shoved with {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for just under 1.2 million and Nadim decided to put his last 10 big blinds in play, turning up {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

"I don't mind to take clubs," Nadim said before the flop was dealt.

The dealer helped him only partially, revealing the {10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop.

The {4-Hearts}, however, brought some extra outs for Nadim who now had a straight draw. "Always a sweat," Bonomo smiled.

The river card was the {Q-Spades}, leaving Bonomo's hand ahead. The first US Poker Open winner shook his hands with Nadim, congratulating him to a great performance.

"You put me in some really tough spots, man," Bonomo said to Nadim. "I enjoyed it," Nadim replied. He picked up $136,000 for his runner-up finish while Bonomo took the $190,400 first prize and an early lead for the overall title.
