The heads-up battle did not last long. Elio Fox took the lead and then the title in less than fifteen minutes.
Fox was on the button and the board was reading . Shak checked, Fox bet 80,000 and Shak announced all in.
He had 825,000 and Fox quickly called after one quick look at his cards to confirm.
Fox was far ahead with the turned Broadway straight and Shak was looking for four outs. The river could not upgrade his two pair to a boat and the match was over.
Shak earned $305,000 for his runner-up finish and Fox walked to the cage to pick up his $500,000 first place prize. This is the fifth time Fox earned a six-digit payout in the last month including a WSOP High Roller bracelet.
Super High Roller recap to come soon.
