On a flop of Jd8d4s, Alik Sitnyakovsky checked and Alan Phillips bet and Sitnyakovsky check-raised all in. Phillips called and the cards were tabled.

Phillips showed QhQd and had to dodge a fair amount of outs against Sitnyakovsky’s 7d6d.

The turn was the Ts and the river was the 9c. Both players made a straight on the river, but Phillips’ straight was queen-high and he won the pot and the tournament.

Phillips earned $15,484 for the win and Sitnyakovsky was the runner-up. He took home $9,078 for his second place finish.
