Norman Michalek

Nahrain “2Rivers” Tamero raised to 1,000,000 and Norman "abnormality" Michalek called to see a {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} flop appear.

Michalek check-raised to 2,500,000 after Tamero continued for 1,000,000 and was called.

Once the {q-Diamonds} appeared on the turn, Michalek led out for 2,750,000 and Tamero called to see the {10-Spades} complete the board on the river.

Michalek moved all in for 5,677,408, Tamero snap-called, and both players tabled their hands.

Michalek rolled over {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for air while Tamero turned over {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades} to win the hand and just like that, after three failed bluffs, Michalek was eliminated in second place.

Below is a look at one of the bluff hands Tamero was able to pick off.
