After losing yet another big Razz pot, Nick Yunis was then in the big blind in PLO and had to pay the big blind ante of 160,000 as well as the big blind for 160,000 to be left with 20,000 behind. "I am basically all-in", he said with a dry smile on the face. Menikos Panagiotou raised on the button and Yunis called it off.
Yunis had found a premium hand for his potential chip and a chair miracle comeback as he held a double-suited ace with straight outs. However, the flop instantly delivered the wheel to Panagiotou and it was all but over after the turn as the Chilean only had two outs to a chop. However, the miracle never came and the river ended the tournament.
Fewer than half an hour of run-bad in significant Razz pots had Yunis settle for the runner-up spot and he takes home $111,724.
Panagiotou has not only earned his first-ever personal WSOP bracelet along with the top prize of $180,783 but also the first one for his home country of Cyprus.
A recap of today's action and the winner quotes are to follow.
