Filippo Candio raised before Ronnie Bardah moved all in. Candio snapped him off when action got back to him. Bardah held the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}, but saw the bad news as Candio held the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}. Bardah went over to the stands where he was embraced by his friends as they rooted loudly for a bunch of hearts to fall.

The flop came down {J-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Bardah only picked up one heart. He would need turn-and-river help in order to stay alive.

The turn card was the {J-Spades} and that was it, there was no longer a sweat and Candio pumped his fist knowing he won the hand. The river completed the board with the {8-Hearts}.

Bardah finished in 24th place for $317,161, a very well-deserved payday for his first-ever cash in the WSOP Main Event.
