Peter Charalambous Eliminated in 6th Place ($74,845)

• Nivel 25: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante
Peter Charalambous - 6th place

First into the pot, Bryce Yockey pot-raised to 105,000 from the button, and Peter Charalambous three-bet shoved for 225,000 from the big blind. Yockey only had 215,000 total, and he called all in looking for the double.

Yockey: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades}
Charalambous: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}

Yockey sure liked the {8-Clubs} {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds} flop a great deal, and he pulled into a big lead with trips. The turn {4-Diamonds} and river {8-Spades} further improved him to aces full, and he doubled to 445,000. Charalambous stood up, threw his bag over his shoulder, and said his goodbyes to the table. But he still had 10,000 chips left.

Charalambous was all in from the small blind on the next hand, and he had kings again: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Nick Binger bet David Bach out on a {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop, and he turned over a hand that could beat the at-risk player: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Binger turned trips into a full house on the {A-Diamonds} turn, and Charalambous was drawing dead to the {7-Clubs} river. With that, he becomes our sixth-place finisher, walking out with just shy of $75,000 as a reward for his fine efforts this week.
