Keith Morrow

Heads-up play lasted just a few hands.

In one of the early pots, Veerab Zakarian opened the button with a raise, and Keith Morrow three-bet to 100,000 in the big blind. Zakarian shoved for around 400,000 total, and Morrow called to put him at risk.

Zakarian: QhQd
Morrow: AdJs

The Ts7s5s flop was a good sweat, giving Morrow a flush draw with two cards to come. The Qs on the turn filled that draw, but Zakarian picked up outs to a full house or better. He needed the board to pair to extend the match. The river was the Kc, though, the final card of the day.

Morrow took the pot with the nut flush, winning Event 6 for $35,378. He also collected 11 bounties worth $500 apiece along the way. More about his victory will be published later this evening.

Veerab Zakarian

Zakarian was forced to settle for the runner-up consolation prize of $21,960.
