Michael Addamo

In a previous hand, Michael Addamo limped in, David Peters made it 380,160 and Addamo called. The flop was {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Peters bet 330,880, which Addamo called. On the {2-Hearts} turn, Peters barreled 492,800 and Addamo folded.

Peters then shoved all-in twice and Michael Addamo folded a button to be left with 1,054,200, a little over seven big blinds. Each of the remaining chips went in preflop in what would become the final hand of the tournament.

Michael Addamo: {j-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
David Peters: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

The {5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{a-Spades} flop left Addamo drawing to a runner-runner and the {a-Diamonds} on the turn sealed it for Peters, making the fill-up on the {k-Diamonds} river the cherry on top. Addamo ended up just shy of winning his third WSOP bracelet and received $223,488 for finishing runner-up.

With the victory, David Peters is now a two-time WSOP bracelet winner! The American received $360,480 in addition to the coveted prize. A full recap of the day is to follow.
