Event 50: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Two-Time Bracelet Winner Doubles Through Julius

Panayote Vilandos

Kyle Julius raised to 125,000 from the cutoff and then called a three-bet to 300,000 from Panayote "Pete" Vilandos. When the flop fell {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, Julius checked and Vilandos fired out 500,000. Julius thought for a bit before announcing, "All in," and Vilandos snap-called off for 1.675 million total.

Vilandos: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Julius: {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Julius didn't have much, just an over and a gut-shot straight draw, but the latter was taken away when the {8-Hearts} turned. Julius needed either another eight or an ace on the river to eliminate Vilandos, but it was not meant to be as the {10-Hearts} peeled off.

For those who don't know, Vilandos has more than $1.4 million in WSOP earning, including two bracelets. The first came all the way back in Event #10 $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold’em at the 1995 WSOP for $148,500, while the second came more recently in Event #24 $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em at the 2009 WSOP for $607,256.
