John Dollinger limped his button, Brian Altman raised to 800,000 and Dollinger quickly moved all in for 9,175,000.

“Did you say all-in?” Altman asked to confirm.

He did and Altman immediately called.

Altman: AcAd
Dollinger: As8d

Dollinger needed a lot of help to stay in the game but there was no magic on the Kc9s7d flop. The 2d turn left Dollinger drawing dead and Altman was officially a two-time WPT LHPO champ after the Th river.

Dollinger earned $311,751 for his runner-up finish while Altman earned $482,636 and put his name on the WPT Champions Cup for a second time.
