Seth Davies had worked the stacks nearly back to even when the tournament’s largest pot played out heads up. It began with Davies limping the button, and Harrison Gimbel raised to 140,000 in the big blind. Davies moved all in for exactly 1,000,000 total, and Gimbel called to put him at risk. It was a flip.

Davies: 8h8c
Gimbel: AdKc

The AcJs6d flop gave Gimbel a big lead with a pair of aces. Davies began to stand from his chair as the turn brought the blank 9h. He was just about to reach out for a handshake when the 8d dropped off the deck on the river, giving him the pot with a set of eights. Davies doubled into a commanding chip lead, and the match was over two hands later.

On the final hand, Davies shoved the button with Tc6s, and Gimbel called all in with 7h8h to put himself at risk. The board ran out QhJh4cQd9c, and Davies won the pot and the tournament with his ten kicker. A recap of his victory will be published shortly.

Gimbel was eliminated as the runner-up, earning $28,146.
