Marco Bognanni Eliminated in 2nd Place ($183,742)
Hand #137: Marco Bognanni aised to 3,000,000 on the button, Robert Mitchell three-bet to 10,000,000 in the big blind, Bognanni four-bet shoved all in for 53,000,000 and Mitchell snap-called him off.
Just like that, 106 out of the 112 big blinds left in play were in the middle.
"Hooold!" Mitchell's rail yelled. He ran over to them and high-fived them in advance. The flop came down to keep him way ahead, and after the turn Mitchell only needed to fade the treys to win his first-ever WSOP bracelet.
The dealer burned and turned the on the river and Mitchell ran over to his ecstatic rail. He high-fived every one of them before one of his friends took him on their shoulders in celebration.
Bognanni's amazing run in Event #37 came to an end in second place, parlaying an $800 investment into a $183,742 score.
