Yuval Bronshtein raised and Kevin Erickson reraised. Bronshtein then put in another raise and Erickson put in one final reraise for the remainder of his chips. Bronshtein called and the hands were revealed.

Kevin Erickson: {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Yuval Bronshtein: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Bronshtein found a great time to pick up a dominating hand and was looking to hold as the dealer fanned out the {10-Spades}{2-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop.

The {j-Hearts} came on the turn and Erickson now needed a nine or ace to stay alive. Both rails were on edge waiting for the river card.

The {8-Diamonds} completed the board and Bronshtein sealed the come-from-behind victory after a lengthy heads-up battle.

Bronshtein jumped into his rail as he celebrated his victory and his second bracelet. Erickson had a great run, but will have to settle for second place.

A recap is to follow.
