Ron Pease got his stack into the middle with A-10, but unfortunately ran into the A-J of Chris Tryba. However, the board ran out 7-5-2-A-10, giving Pease a very lucky double up to around 6.5 million. Tryba was left with 2 million.

The next hand was the final of the evening. All the money went in with Tryba holding A-5 offsuit, while Pease held the JDiamond Suit 9Heart Suit.

The flop fell KDiamond Suit QClub Suit 7Spade Suit, which was safe for Tryba. The turn brought the QDiamond Suit, which wasn’t what Pease needed. The river, however, was the 9Spade Suit, giving him the pot and the title. It was over, after around 12 hours of final-table play.
