Sam Trickett Eliminated in 2nd Place ($505,725); Jason DeWitt Wins!

Sam Trickett - 2nd Place

Jason DeWitt moved all in from the button in his first real preflop attack on the stack of his opponent. Sam Trickett looked down at his hole cards and made a quick call!

DeWitt: {8-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Trickett: {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

DeWitt got caught but had live cards for a shot at the title.

The flop fell {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} and DeWitt spiked a pair to take the lead as Trickett flopped a straight draw for the sweat. The turn {6-Clubs} changed nothing and Trickett was left needing an ace, nine or four to stay alive. It wasn't to be as the {5-Hearts} landed on the river and Jason DeWitt is our champion!

A bitterly disappointed Sam Trickett is consoled by his friends and family on the rail, but he'll wake up tomorrow morning with 505,725 reasons to smile.
