Paulie 'the Roofer' Georges (Roslyn, NY)
Jeremy 'the Big Dog' Brown had a huge lead over Paulie 'the Roofer' Georges when they got heads up.
Paulie got all-in for 372k with A8 against Jeremy's A2 and doubled up when the board came K J 8 4 8.
Then Paulie was all-in again with A9 against Jeremy's A5. This time the board ran 8 7 5 4 9 and Jeremy paired his 5 to take the pot and the tournament.
Paulie is, you guessed it, a Roofer in New York and only plays poker for fun when he has time. He fought hard today and got his chips in good on the last hand, but the mountain of chips held by the Big Dog was too much to overcome.
