Vladimir Peck, Day 2 Level 23

Vladimir Peck was out of position on the turn with the board reading 2♠10♦K♣4♠ and ~300-400k in the middle against Carlos Alvarado.

Peck checked and Alvarado fired 150k. Peck made the call leaving himself ~460k behind.

River: 7♣ Pot: ~650k

Peck checked again. Alvarado moved all-in, having Peck covered. Peck thought for just a few moments before making the call for his final 467k.

Alvarado K♥J♠ vs Peck K♠Q♦ Pot: ~1.6M

Peck barely notches Alvarado with his kicker and was forced to make a tough call with just one pair. Alvarado is still healthy with ~1.8M but has lost his chip-lead over the last 45-minutes.
