KaleGozer • Level 43: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante
Adrian Scarpa

On the button, Adrian Scarpa moved all in for 2,850,000. Tommy Nguyen took his time in the small blind before reshoving all in and Brett Apter folded the big blind.

Adrian Scarpa: {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Tommy Nguyen: {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

"Ace-eight versus ace-five!" Scarpa yelled to his rail in the Thunderdome, who anxiously jumped on their feet to watch the action unfold. The {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop paired up Nguyen's inferior kicked, and the rail let an "Oh God!" escape in anguish.

"Seven baby!" they quickly rooted, but neither the {k-Spades} turn nor {a-Diamonds} river would turn it around for their champion. The Foxwoods regular saw a fantastic run come to an end in fourth place, worth a payday of $77,591.
