Valerie Novak

Chance Kornuth raised to 275,000, Valerie Novak three-bet to 625,000, and Kornuth called.

The flop was 4s10s8h, Novak checked, Kornuth bet 350,000, and Novak check-raised all in with a covering stack.

“I think my hand is too good to fold,” said Kornuth, who thought for about 30 seconds before he called all in for another 2,800,000.

Novak showed KhKs for a pair of kings, leading Kornuth’s Qd10c for a pair of tens.

The turn was the Jc, giving Kornuth a few extra outs to a straight.

The river was the 7s, safe for Novak to win the tournament outright for $91,835.

Kornuth finished runner-up for $61,585.

A recap of the event will be posted later this morning.
