Heads-up play had only been underway for a minute or two when Stanley Lee raised from the button to 530,000, and Mike Vanier called and, thinking Lee was all in, briefly turned over his Kh9h. But Lee still had 30K left in his stack.

The flop came As10c5c, and Vanier moved all in. Lee said he didn’t like his situation, but he called all in for 30,000 with Jh9d for jack high. Vanier officially flipped over his Kh9h, and Lee needed to catch a jack or a runner-runner straight to stay alive.

The turn card was the Qc, giving Lee an open-ended straight draw, but the river card was the 6c. Vanier won the pot — and the title, the trophy, and $105,570) with king high.

Stanley Lee finished as the runner-up, earning $72,225.
