Kyle Julius Eliminated in 2nd Place ($589,687)

Kyle Julius - 2nd Place

It took just a few hands after the break for Peter Vilandos to close out the heads-up duel.

Vilandos limped on the button, Kyle Julius moved all-in for around 2.1 million from the big blind, and Vilandos made the call.

Julius{A-Spades} {5-Spades}

The crowd was clearly on the side of Julius as they bayed for a five like the wolves in the face of a moon.

Flop: {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}

There was a stunned silence…then after a few seconds the sounds of, "FIVE, FIVE, FIVE," bellowed from the crowd once more.

Turn: {3-Spades}

"DEUCE, DEUCE, DEUCE," screamed the fans in louder and louder tones.

River: {10-Spades}

The crowd turned their heads away from the table and the two combatants shook hands. Kyle Julius had come as close as he had ever come to winning a WSOP title, and for that he should pat himself on the back. For Vilandos it is now a hat trick of WSOP titles and what an amazing feat that is.
