WPT Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open Champion Andrew Wilson

Josh Kay raised from the small blind to 2,200,000 with 8s7h, Andrew Wilson reraised to 7,000,000 with KhKd, and Kay thought for a while before he called.

The flop came 10h7d4c, Wilson bet 6,500,000, Kay moved all in for 24,300,000, and Wilson snap-called with his KhKd. Wilson turned over his 8s7h for a pair of sevens, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The turn card was the Qd, the river card was the 2s, and Wilson won the pot — and the WPT title — with pocket kings.

Josh Kay finished as the runner-up, earning $525,000.

Andrew Wilson won the WPT Rock ‘n’ Roll Poker Open, earning $785,800.

Wilson will also receive a $10,400 seat into the season-ending WPT World Championship, which begins in about a week in Las Vegas.
