A few hands after doubling up with against Depaulo's , 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:
Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depaulo:
Depaulo looked primed to avenge his third-place performance at 2019's WSOP Event #61:$400 Colossus No-Limit Hold'em, and the flop and turn meant Salter had to hit an ace to continue their heads-up match.
The hit the river instead, and Salter settled for second-place after a deep run, while Ryan Depaulo earned his first WSOP gold bracelet.
