Stephen McHugh - 2nd place

And a winner is crowned!

Stephen McHugh has just busted in second place after a huge coinflip that saw all the money in preflop.

Michael Kane raised the button to 100,000 before McHugh made it another 150,000 to go. Kane pushed all in over the top and McHugh snapped it off for his remaining 1,300,000.

McHugh: {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Kane: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

They were racing and the flop of {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{J-Hearts} saw McHugh jump to the lead. The turn {10-Hearts} gave McHugh trips but also brought a flush draw for Kane.

The river {4-Hearts} completed Kane’s flush and a painful run out for McHugh sent him to the rail as the runner up here in the ANZPT Perth Main Event.

McHugh receives $72,100 as per the heads up deal, while the champion Michael Kane takes home the extra $20,00 to bring his total to $98,900.
