Stacks at the start of the beginning of FT looked as following:
1. Mikita Badziakouski (Belarus) – 4,205,000

3. Justin Bonomo (USA) – 3,965,000
4. Jason Koon (USA) – 1,185,000
5. Nick Petrangelo (USA) – 600,000
6. Christoph Vogelsang (Germany) – 445,000
It was a very short evening for Nick Petrangelo. Soon after the game started the American raised with TT from CO. Koon in the button had QQ and put in a 3-bet. The action was back ono Petrangelo, who announced all-in. Quick call and no help on the board.
Vogelsang said goodbye to SHRB in the fifth place. He had the smallest stack at the beginning but by waiting for Petrangelo to hit the rail he earned additional $300k. When he had very little left he went open all-in from SB with Q6s, and he was called by Mikita Badziakouski who found JJ. Board brought no surprises here either.
Afte a cople of hous Mikita Badziakouski hit the rrail as well. Justin Bonomo opened from SB, and Mikita protected his blind. The flop came: T93r, there was a c-bet and call. Turn came 4c. Bonomo went for another barrel and Badziakouski replied with all-in. Both players had a ten (T), but American had a stronger kicker, king (K), and Badziakouski only eight (8). There were three players left in the game afterwards.
Bonomo was getting stronger and stronger and he robbed his rivals of their chips. In one very important hand he took most of Koon's chips, when his two pair proved better than his rival's two. Bonomo finished the deal a few moments later when Koon went all-in from SB with 86s, and Justin callded with A4. No help on the board and we had a heads-up.
Justin had 11 million chips in his stack when HU began. Negreanu was holding about 3 million.
There was a moment when Daniel caught up a bit and Bonomo had only 2 to 1 lead, but then he flopped a set, and Negreanu was drawing to a straight. All-in from Daniel Negreanu, no help on the turn nor river and Justin Bonomo was crowned the champion of SHRB.
