Robert Georato Eliminated in 12th Place ($38,976)
Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Tommy Vedes (right) raises from early position, Kyle Bowker calls in the small blind, and Robert Georato (center) calls from the big blind.
The flop comes KQ2 and action checks to Vedes, who bets 43,000. Bowker folds, then Georato check-raises to 143,000 total. Vedes deliberates a bit, then calls.
The turn brings the K and Georato bets 175,000. Vedes takes his time before calling a second time. The river is the 4 and Georato announces he is all-in for his last 250,000 or so.
Vedes calls immediately and flips over KQ for kings full of queens. Georato's jaw drops and the table lets out a series of gasps when Georato shows 22 for deuces full of kings.
After starting the day second in chips with over a million chips, Georato is eliminated in 12th place.
Tommy Vedes - 1,550,000 (97 BBs)
Robert Georato - eliminated in 12th place ($38,976)
