Once Rafael Camejo wrestled the chip lead away from Mark Napier, their heads up match quickly became a one-sided affair. Camejo gained more and more chips from Napier and before long, Napier was under 100,000. Napier had a chance to get a big double but in the end, it was Camejo’s day.
The two players invested 15,000 a piece to see the A♣8♣7♠ flop and then both checked to the 10♥ turn. Camejo checked for the second time and Napier bet 45,000. Camejo then check-raised all-in for over 200,000 total and Napier called to put himself at risk.
Camejo had the edge with 9♥8♥ but Napier was live with his 9♠7♦. Needing a six, seven, or a jack to stay alive, Napier missed on the 5♠ river and will settle for second place. A winner’s recap will be posted shortly.
