Bryan Pellegrino Eliminated in 2nd Place ($117,199)

Bryan Pellegrino - Your Runner Up

Bryan Pellegrino seemingly had nine lives in this heads up battle, but his luck has finally run out. Nick Jivkov raised pot, and Pellegrino went all in. Jivkov snap called him, and the cards were flipped up.

Jivkov: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Pellegrino: {j-Hearts}{9-Spades}

The flop brought a ton of paint, but it was still safe for Jivkov, coming {q-Hearts}{k-Spades}{8-Spades}. Pellegrino could now grab a ten for a straight to win, and the jack would still do for him. The {7-Clubs} on the turn didn't help, and we were down to the river one more time. There were no more miracles for Pellegrino, as the {2-Clubs} hit the river.

Pellegrino fought valiantly to last as long as he did in heads up play, and he walks away with a well deserved payday of just under $120,000.
