After trading chips and the chip lead back and forth, Remmel moved all-in for his last 430,000 and Yilmaz snap-called. Remmel showed A2 and Yilmaz turned up K5. The would-be champion picked up a pair of fives on a flop of 1053. The turn was the 10 and the 8 on the river would seal the deal with Yilmaz as the winner.

Yilmaz outlasted a field of 182 players to become the fourth CPPT champion of Season II. Remmel left with $34,467 for his efforts.
Erkut Yilmaz moved all in from the button and Remmel called off his remaining 320,000.
“I only looked at a queen,” said Yilmaz as he tabled QJ.
Remmel tabled KQ and was in great shape for a double up, though he would have been fine with losing.
“Just spike a jack and let’s all go to sleep,” said Remmel before the flop was dealt.
The dealer peeled off a flop of 432 and Yilmaz was still searching for a jack to end the tournament.
“Nope,” said Remmel. “Looks like we are going to be playing a little bit longer.”
The turn and river were both bricks and Remmel doubled up to just 670,000.
The blinds have been raised to 12,000/24,000 with a 2,000 ante.

“Did he say all in?” asked Yilmaz. “Ok, I call.”
Yilmaz tabled AK and was in great shape to double up against Remmel’s K7.
“Oops,” said Remmel. “King salmon floating up stream. Or down. I don’t know.”
The flop was Q86 and Remmel was still searching for a seven to end the tournament. The turn was the 6 and the river was the 8 and Remmel scooped the pot with ace high.
It took just over a minute to count down Yilmaz’s stack and verify that he was all in for 1,087,000. Yilmaz doubles up to 2,174,000 and Remmel slides to 584,000.
“That was a little big misstep there,” said Remmel. “Now you definitely have the chip lead.”
