Duncan Bell
Merrifield raised to 155,000 and Bell called. The flop came {6-Clubs} {8-Spades} {2-Spades}, Bell bet 150,000 and Merrifield raised to 500,000. Bell said all in and Merrifield called...

To find that his {10-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} were crushed by Bell's {A-Spades} {A-Clubs}. The turn was the {4-Clubs} and the river the {J-Hearts}, giving Duncan Bell the victory and the bracelet. Surrounded by his large and rather rowdy group of friends Bell couldn't bear to watch as the final card was shown, but when it was and the win assured he shook hands with Merrifield and circled back to the table to pose for photographs.

As our runner-up Merrifield wins $428,949, while Duncan "Pumper" Bell wins $666,777--and the gold WSOP bracelet.
