Scott Baumstein had increased his lead to about 4:1 during the first 10 minutes of heads-up action before the first all-in confrontation took place.

Ramsey Jones limped on the button, Baumsein raised to about 2,000,000 from the big blind, Jones reraised all in for about 300,000 more and Baumstein called with 2c2s, flipping with Jones’ AcKs.

The flop came 6h5h3d, safe for Baumstein thus far. The 2h turn improved Baumstein to a set of deuces, leaving Jones drawing to just a chop to survive. The river was an inconsequential Kc for Jones, locking up the victory for Baumstein, his second in a matter of days, for $96,795 and his fifth SHRP major series trophy.

Jones finished runner-up for $67,200.
