Michael Binger - 2nd Place

From the button, Michael Binger raised to 10,000. Andrew Chen was in the small blind and three-bet to 25,000. Shaun Deeb was in the big blind and went all in for right around 25,000. Binger thought for a bit and had an interesting decision on his hands. He couldn't let Chen eliminate Deeb because then he would be out of the running for the $25,000 bounty bonus.

Would he re-shove and try and get heads up with Deeb? Would he just call or would he fold and let Chen try and eliminate Deeb? If he folded and Chen wound up busting Deeb, Binger wouldn't be able to tie Deeb with eight bounties.

Binger decided to make the call and the action was three ways to the flop, which came down {J-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Chen was up first and fired 20,000. With Deeb all in, Binger was next to act. He decided to raise all in and was met with a quick call from Chen.

Chen: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Binger: {9-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Deeb: {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Chen held top pair and the nut flush draw to be in prime position to knockout both players and end the tournament. Binger held middle pair of sixes and Deeb held bottom pair.

The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and that was the end of it all with Chen making the nut flush. The river completed the board with the {A-Clubs} to officially end the hand and it was all in the books.

Chen sent both Deeb and Binger packing on the same hand to claim $213,000 in prize money for winning the final table. He also won two more $1,000 bounties and ensured Deeb of the $25,000 bounty bonus.
