Bracelet winner Nick Jivkov Runs into Aces, Takes 3rd ($11,579) in Event #4 $360 Deepstack NLH

Nick Jivkov shoved his last 1,200,000 on the button with Kc 9c and was called by Victor Gitterle, who had pocket aces in the small blind. Keith Thurman folded his big blind and Jivkov, who was the chip leader for the entire final table until he doubled Gitterle up three-handed, was at risk for his tournament life, and behind. He could not catch up to Gitterle’s aces. Jivkov gets $11,579 for his 3rd place finish.

At the start of heads-up play:
Victor Gitterle – 3,800,000
Keith Thurman – 2,120,000
