Ben Heath - 2nd Place

Hand #169: The action started with Shurane Vijayaram raising to 350,000 from the button and finding a call from Ben Heath in the big blind.

The flop fell {6-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades} and Heath checked. Vijayaram fired out 400,000. Heath called.

The turn brought the {3-Hearts} and Heath checked. Vijayaram bet out 500,000 before Heath came over the top with a raise to 1,390,000. Vijayaram thought for a minute then cut out the chips to call and slid them out.

The {q-Spades} completed the board and Heath moved all in for 3,200,000. Vijayaram went into the tank for five minutes as he deliberated over his decision. In the final stages, he ran through the hand convinced himself that Heath had missed a draw and called the all in.

Heath reluctantly flipped over his {k-Spades}{8-Clubs} for king-high and Vijayaram nodded his head before tabling his {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a pair and the winning hand.

Heath takes home AUD$1,000,000 for his efforts after finishing in second place. The figure instantly doubles his career earnings after a solid week at the tables.
