$200,000 GuaranteedOn the last hand of the $200,000 Guaranteed, Australian “WRHearst” was ahead of his opponent “riverbuck” by a 2-1 advantage in chips. His pocket cards were 9 7 of diamonds, and he made a small bet. “riverbuck” was holding A K unsuited, and he raised, which the Australian called.

The flop delivered an ace of spades, and Q T of diamonds. “riverbuck” made a bet on the strength of his aces, and “WRHearst” raised with his four diamonds. The turn brought the eight of diamonds. When “riverbuck” checked, “WRHearst” bet his entire stack. “riverbuck” called, only to lose everything when it was revealed that “WRHearst” had hit his flush.

For his first place finish in the tournament, “WRHearst” received $34,136, while “riverbuck” had to settle for the second place prize of $25,100.
