Robert Israeli (Short Hills, NJ)
Businessman Robert Israeli knocked out multiple players at the final table but in the end he was felted by Robert Romanowski.
Israeli was playing heads-up from behind and it only lasted a few hands.
All the chips tumble in after Israeli's K-9 hits a king and Romanowski turns trip eights.
Romanowski barreled out until the river. After a sneaky check, Israeli shoves all in and Romanowski quickly calls for the victory.
"This was a very exciting tournament with a lot of back and forth ...I love it and had a lot of fun" said Robert Israeli.
"I tried to break his spirit...he was dead a long time ago" commented Israeli toward Romanowski.
"My spirit can't be broken...Chips swing around real fast in this game" said Romanowski.
It was a great match to watch and remember, if Israeli rivers a diamond or a queen on the three-way all in hand he wins the entire tournament right there.
Robert Israeli finished in 2nd Place earning $9,347.
