Jonathan Tamayo - 2nd Place
Jonathan Tamayo - 2nd Place
No-Limit Hold'em:

After being crippled on the last hand of the limit portion of this level, Jonathan Tamayo decides he has to make a move and announces he is all in. Frank Gary takes some time before making the call.

Gary holds {A-Spades} {3-Hearts} and Tamayo has his tournament life on the line with {Q-Hearts} {7-Spades}.

The dealer places the flop out on the felt and it comes {A-Clubs} {6-Spades} {4-Clubs}, pairing Gary's ace and pushing Tamayo closer to the end.

The turn is the {8-Spades}, which helps Tamayo to pick up some straight outs.

As Tamayo's crowd yells for the five of hearts to hit the board on the river, the dealer doesn't grant them their wish as he places the {2-Spades} on the end of the board.

Tamayo will go home in second place, earning $140,093 for his finish.

Frank Gary wins the event, $219,508, and the coveted gold bracelet!
