Outcome

Preflop, final table, four handed, with the blinds at 100,000 and 200,000 and a 25,000 ante, Wilkerson raised to 400,000 from the button, Pahuja went all-in from the big blind, and Wilkerson called.

Analysis

Wilkerson faced an additional 1,250,000 for the pot of 2,250,000, getting 1.8 : 1 on his money while covering his opponent by a 2.7 : 1 margin. His chip advantage and the pot odds led him to the call, only to discover his opponent had him dominated. Just a few hands earlier, Pahuja had Wilkerson dominated and all-in preflop with A-K against A-7 for a 6 million pot, but a brutal Seven on the river allowed Wilkerson to survive while crippling Pahuja. Wilkerson had another bad beat in store for Pahuja, now eliminating his opponent with the very chips that Pahuja probably regarded as rightfully his. After having started the six-handed table as the chipleader, this was undoubtedly a very unpleasant ending to Pahuja’s tournament, but the $320,800 4th place money was Pahuja’s second largest cash to date and moved his lifetime earnings to $1.8 million.
