During the Stud round, Brandon Caputo had the Kd showing, and he completed to 25,000. Michael Rosenberg had the Qh showing, and he raised to 50,000, and they continued back and forth for a few more bets until Rosenberg was all in, and then they turned over their hole cards:

Brandon Caputo:  (Ah2c) Kd
Michael Rosenberg:  (Qc7d) Qh

Rosenberg led with a pair of queens, and he needed them to hold to stay alive.

Brandon Caputo:  (Ah2c) KdJhJd10d (Qs)
Michael Rosenberg:  (Qc7d) Qh9s10h8c (3s)

Caputo picked up a pair of jacks on fifth street, but Rosenberg still led with his pair of queens. But seventh street was a killer for Rosenberg, as Caputo spiked a queen to fill an ace-high straight, winning the pot — and the tournament.

Stay tuned for a recap of this event.
