Derrick Yamada - 2nd Place
Derrick Yamada - 2nd Place

Derrick Yamada opened to 200,000, Cary Marshall defended, and the flop was {7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. Marshall check-called a bet, and the turn was the {j-Spades}.

Marshall checked, Yamada slid out 500,000, and Marshall quickly called.

The river was the {5-Diamonds}, and Marshall instantly went all in. Yamada went deep into the tank, examining his stack, and finally called.

Marshall tabled {k-Spades}{8-Clubs} for a rivered straight, and Yamada shook his head. Marshall raised his hands in victory, and Derrick showed {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for a turned set of jacks!

It took a huge cooler to finish this heads-up battle, but it's over. Marshall is your champion, while Yamada will take home $86,056 for second place.
