Dylan Garland Eliminated in 2nd Place ($92,460)

Dylan Garland

Back down to less than 1 million in chips, Dylan Garland defended his big blind against a min-raise to 100,000 by Christopher Soyza. The flop came {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Garland check-raised all in for what looked like 750,000 chips. Soyza, who had bet 100,000, called quickly and they tabled the cards:

Garland: {9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for middle pair
Soyza: {7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} for top pair

Both the {10-Clubs} turn and the {A-Hearts} river blanked and Garland was eliminated in 2nd place for A$92,460. Soyza not only won this event in 2016, but the defending champion secured a back-to-back triumph in Melbourne!
