Correia eliminated by Geci

Endrit Geci limped in on the button and Francisco Correia opted to check.

The flop came {3-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, they both checked to the {10-Clubs} on the turn. Correia check-called the 10,000,000 bet of Geci.

The river completed the board with the {k-Diamonds}, Correia checked for the last time and Geci took a bit of time before opting to shove. Correia tanked for a while before opting to make the call for the 69,076,667 he had behind with the {10-Spades}{2-Spades} for the pair of tens. Geci held the {a-Spades}{k-Spades} for top two pair to win the extra $50,000 on top of the $724,838 he had already secured to get to a total of $774,838 while Correia walked away with $731,960 as the runner-up.

A recap is to follow.
