Hand #131: Park raised to 25,000,000 from the button and Kapalas shoved for 78,000,000. Park confirmed the amount with the dealer and then flicked in the chip for the call.

Georgios Kapalas: {a-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Sejin Park: {k-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

The flop came {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} for Park to hit trip deuces to jump ahead while the South Korean rail cheered loudly.

The turn was the {8-Spades} for Kapalas to pick up a chance to chop if another eight would come on the river.

The river completed the board with the {j-Spades} for the tournament to be over as the deal was sealed and Park wins the 2nd bracelet for South Korea this summer.

Kapalas was sent to the payout desk to collect $278,881 for his efforts over the past days.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
