Colby Covington

David Shmuel limped from the button for 25,000, and Colby Covington checked his option.

The flop came 7d6c5s, Covington checked, Shmuel bet 40,000, and Covington called.

The turn card was the Ad, and they quickly got it all in for Shmuel’s last 180,000.

Colby Covington:  Qs8d5d5h  (set of fives, eight-high flush draw, 8-7 low)
David Shmuel:  Kd10h9d8h  (nine-high straight, king-high flush draw, no low draw)

Shmuel needed his hand to hold to win half the pot and stay alive, but the river card was the 5c. Colby Covington won the pot — and the title, the trophy, and $25,875 — with quad fives.

Congratulations to Colby Covington!
