Vlad Darie raised to 50,000 on the button and Farid Yachou defended his big blind.

The flop was 8h2h2c and Yachou checked. Darie bet 50,000 and Yachou check-raised to 250,000. Darie tanked for almost his entire 30 second time bank before calling.

The turn was the Tc and Yachou bet 200,000. Darie called and the river was the 8d.

Yachou moved all in for 1,585,000, which was much more than what Darie had remaining. Darie thought for a good chunk of his time clock and then called.

Yachou showed As2d, good for deuces full and Darie tabled Kc7d, giving him the two pair on the board with a king kicker. Darie was eliminated in second place and Yachou won the title.

Darie took home $224,190 for his second place finish and Yachou  netted $381,600 for his win. Yachou also took home a brand new corvette for the title.
