Adam Walter
Event 2 Winner Adam Walter

With the final board showing [Kh][7s][5c][7h][6h], Adam Walter bet, and Michael Rosenberg tanked for a while before he called off most of his stack from the button.

Here were their cards:

Adam Walter:  [Qh][Qd][3h][2c]  (queen-high flush, 7-6 low)
Michael Rosenberg:  [8d][6d][5d][4d]  (eight-high straight, 8-7 low)

Walter scooped the entire pot with his flush and his 7-6 low to take a 20-to-1 chip lead.

Adam Walter  –  890,000  (30 bb)
Michael Rosenberg  –  45,000  (2 bb)

The next hand, they got it all in preflop, and both had surprisingly good hands:

Adam Walter:  [Ac][Kh][Qs][Jh]
Michael Rosenberg:  [10s][10c][9c][8d]

Neither player had any shot at a low hand, and the board came [Qc][6h][3s][6c][2s]. Walter paired his queen on the flop to win the pot — and the Lucky Hearts Poker Open trophy — with two pair, queens and sixes.
