Event 30 - $2,500 No Limit Holdem 6 Handed
Day 3 completed

Hand #83 - Hoyt Corkins Wins Event #30 ($515,065)

Hand #83 - Terrence Chan has the button, he raises, Corkins moves all in, and Chan thinks for a few minutes before he calls with {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Corkins shows {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, and Chan will need his hand to hold up to stay alive.

The flop comes {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}, and Chan retains the lead.

The turn card is the -- {K-Clubs}! Corkins turns a pair of kings to take the lead, and Chan needs an ace on the river to survive.

The river card is the {6-Spades}, and Hoyt Corkins wins the hand -- and the bracelet -- with two pair, kings and eights.

Terrence Chan is eliminated in second place, earning $287,345.

Hoyt Corkins wins Event #30 ($2,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed), earning $515,065, a Corum watch, and the second WSOP bracelet of his career. Corkins won his first bracelet 15 years ago (1992) in $5,000 pot-limit Omaha -- that's a long time to go between bracelets. Of course, Corkins has done quite well for himself in the meantime, with a WPT victory and over $2.7 million in career tournament winnings. This victory takes him over the $3 million mark.

Here are the final table payouts:

1st - Hoyt Corkins - $515,065
2nd - Terrence Chan - $287,345
3rd - William Lin - $196,758
4th - Alan Sass - $132,471
5th - Kelly Vande-Mheen - $96,431
6th - James Pittman - $63,118
