Vincent Van Der Fluit

Charles Tonne entered heads-up play with the chip lead after eliminating both Tristan Wade in 3rd place ($102,690) and Damien Lhommueau in 4th place ($74,536), but Vincnet Van Der Fluit managed to take the lead for himself going to Level 24. Van Der Fluit extended his lead early in the level after flopping a full house of kings over aces to win a big showdown that put him up more than 3:1 over his opponent.

Vincent Van Der Fluit min-raised the button to 60,000 and Charles Tonne called from the big blind.

The flop came AClub Suit5Club Suit2Diamond Suit, Tonne checked, Van Der Fluit bet 65,000, Tonne raised to 315,000, Van Der Fluit three-bet, Tonne four-bet shoved and Van Der Fluit called. Tonne was all in for his tournament life with QHeart Suit10Club Suit9Club Suit5Heart Suit for middle pair and a flush draw against Van Der Fluit’s two pair and a higher flush draw with ADiamond SuitJClub Suit7Club Suit2Club Suit.

The turn and river were the KClub Suit and the 7Diamond Suit, giving both players a club flush on the turn, but Van Der Fluit’s jack-high flush defeated Tonne’s flush to the ten and Van Der Fluit gets the gold. Charles Tonne was eliminated in 2nd place ($154,132) while Vincent Van Der Fluit wins Event no. 11, taking him the $265,221 grand prize and the eleventh gold bracelet of the 2012 WSOP.
