Down to his last 570,000, Antonio Barbato moved all in and Ognyan Dimov called to set up the showdown for the bracelet.

Antonio Barbato: {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Ognyan Dimov: {K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

The {J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop paired up DImov and both the Bulgarian and Italian rail started chanting for the next card to come in each favor. After the {5-Spades} turn, Barbato picked up a gutshot, but the {K-Clubs} on the river was a blank for the Italian. Barbato was eliminated in 2nd place and takes home $233,992 for his efforts.

Dimov becomes the third WSOP bracelet winner for Bulgaria and a recap of today's action is to follow.
