Nemer Haddad - 2nd Place

Hasan Anter raised on the button to 500,000 before Nemer Haddad reraised all in for 3.2 million. After some thought, Anter made the call and Haddad's tournament life was officially at risk.

Anter: {a-Spades}{4-Diamonds}
Haddad: {a-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

The flop came {q-Spades}{k-Spades}{10-Spades} which gave Anter a flush draw. The turn wasted no time getting Anter there when it was the {4-Spades}. While that would officially be the card that gave him the bracelet, the river {j-Spades} gave him a Royal Flush which just put the icing on the cake.

Haddad fought through a difficult final table and a swingy heads up battle but ultimately finished one spot short of the bracelet. He will take home $470,521 as a conciliation prize, still more than 300 times his initial investment!
