Asher Conniff limped the button and Joseph Gotlieb raised to 1,050,000. Conniff moved all in for 8,600,000 and Gotlieb quickly called.
“We’re flipping for all of it,” Conniff told his rail.
It was a race but Gotlieb took a big lead on the flop and Conniff was left with four outs after the turn. The river could not save his tournament and the former WPT World Champion had to settle for a runner-up finish.
Gotlieb ran great and picked up $257,638 for his WSOPC Main Event win.
1st: Joseph Gotlieb – $257,638 + Gold Ring and $10K GCC Seat
2nd: Asher Conniff – $159,357
