A few hands after doubling up with {a-Spades}{8-Hearts} against Depaulo's {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, Jack "EarlGrey" Salter raised to 1,600,000 from the button, and Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depaulo three-bet jammed in the big blind. Salter called off his last 17,000,000 and the cards were tabled.

Jack "EarlGrey" Salter: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depaulo: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Depaulo looked primed to avenge his third-place performance at 2019's WSOP Event #61:$400 Colossus No-Limit Hold'em, and the {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop and {3-Diamonds} turn meant Salter had to hit an ace to continue their heads-up match.

The {3-Spades} hit the river instead, and Salter settled for second-place after a deep run, while Ryan Depaulo earned his first WSOP gold bracelet.
