Michael Wang opened to 450,000 and Simon Deadman moved all in. Wang made the call and the cards were turned over:

Wang: {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Deadman: {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

The flop came {K-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Spades} and a member of Deadman's rail yelled "ten or a seven" - rooting for the board to pair to give Deadman more outs. The turn was not a ten or a seven but it was the {K-Diamonds} meaning any ten, seven, or ace on the river would give Deadman the title. The river would be one of those cards... the {7-Hearts}... and Deadman sprang out of his chair and rushed to hug his girlfriend, tears in his eyes.

"I can't believe it," Deadman said. "I don't know where to go."

Deadman went over to Wang and shook his hand. Wang was eliminated in 2nd place taking home $216,904 for his excellent finish.
