Brunno Botteon Eliminated in 2nd Place ($622,300)

KaleGozer • Level 2: 300-600, 0 ante

Brunno Botteon raised to 1,500 and Fedor Holz called. The flop came down {5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Holz checked. Botteon bet 2,011, Holz check-raised to 8,100, Botteon three-bet to 19,680, Holz four-bet shoved all in and Botteon called for 25,865 more.

Brunno Botteon: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Fedor Holz: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

For the second time tonight, Holz had flopped a set of fives and found himself in a commanding spot to claim his second bracelet. The {9-Spades} on the turn brought Holz one card off victory, with only one of the remaining tens being able to spoil the party.

The river was the {4-Spades} and with that, Botteon was eliminated in second place for $622,300. It's the second runner-up finish this series for Botteon, who finished in a similar spot in Event #67: $500 Limit Hold'em.

It's also his second cash in the $25K events of the series after finishing sixth for $388,837 in Event #70: $25,000 POKER PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP. He eclipsed that score tonight to move his winnings for the series over the seven-figure mark.

Meanwhile, Fedor Holz and the PokerCode team can celebrate another huge victory! A full recap of the day is to follow.
