After doubling up Abraham Korotki, John Germano was left short stacked and while he was able to chip up slightly, the next time he was all-in was his last. This time, it was Joe ‘Worm’ Palma’s turn to hit a timely river, sending Germano to the rail in 3rd place.
The action was picked up with Palma opening the small blind and Germano, who was in the big blind, moving all-in for just over 850,000. Palma snap called and needed to hold to score the knockout, as he held to Germano’s .
Germano flopped better but Palma ended on top, as the board ran out , with Palma rivering a superior pair to score the knockout. Germano, who controlled the chip lead for the majority of this final table, just couldn’t recover after doubling up the short stacked Korotki and will make just over $9,000 for his podium finish.
We are now heads up for the BPPS title, with Abraham Korokti controlling a 4,400,000 to 3,700,000 chip advantage.
