Wow. After several hours of slow action, heads-up only lasted two hands. Hoyt Corkins raised to 18,000, and Ashton Griffin called. The flop came out . Griffin bet out 32,000, and Corkins popped it to 100,000. Griffin swiftly moved all in, putting Hoyt to a decision for his tournament life.
Corkins had spent several minutes pondering every decision up until this hand, but it didn't take him very long to call all in. He tabled for top pair. He wasn't pleased to see Griffin roll over for top pair with a better kicker. The on the turn changed nothing since a six would make Hoyt a straight but give Griffin a higher one. The river was the , sealing Corkins' fate as the second-place finisher.
Corkins earned $25,000 for the five bounties he picked up along with $75,000 for making it to the final table. He's already chewing on a cigar at the payout desk.
