Andrew Wilson raised from the small blind to 700,000 with 5s4s, and Josh Kay called with 8d5c.

The flop came 9c5d4c, Kay checked, Wilson bet 1,300,000, and Kay check-raised to 3,700,000. Wilson called.

The turn card was the 7c, and both players check.

The river card was the 10s, Kay checked, Wilson bet 5,000,000, and Kay used at least one Time Chip to tank for a long time before he called with his 8d5c for a pair of fives.

But Wilson turned over his 5s4s to win the pot with two pair, fives and fours, knocking Kay down to 23 big blinds.

That was the last hand of Level 32, and here are the official chip counts heading into Level 33, with blinds of 200,000-400,000:

Andrew Wilson  –  70,000,000  (175 bb)
Josh Kay  –  7,000,000  (18 bb)

And here are the remaining payouts:

1st:  $785,800 + $10,400 WPT World Championship seat
2nd:  $525,000
