Dario Sammartino came into the Final Table 7th in chips but put up an incredible battle to finish the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2nd Place.
After a lengthy heads up battle, Hossein Ensan raised to 11,000,000 on the button and Dario Sammartino came along out of the big blind.
The flop came 10s 6s 2d and Sammartino check-called a bet of 15,000,000.
Both rails fell silent on the 9c turn and Sammartino checked once more. Ensan now fired a second barrel of 33,000,000 and Sammartino pushed all in for 140,000,000 and Ensan snap-called.
Dario Sammartino: 8s 4s
Hossein Ensan: Kh Kc
The combo draw of Sammartino had plenty of outs to turn around the 2-1 chip deficit, however, the Qc on the river was not what he was looking for. Sammartino’s Main Event run came to an end in second place and missed out on the maiden bracelet but takes home $6,000,000 for his efforts.
