Ben Yu

After just a couple of hands of heads-up play, Ali Imsirovic limped in on the button with {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Ben Yu looked down at {a-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} in the big blind and shipped all in for 2,510,000. Imsirovic snap-called with the pocket pair and the cards were on their backs.

The flop fell {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} giving Imsirovic a set of fives and a stranglehold on the hand. The {2-Hearts} on the turn left Yu drawing dead to the river and he was eliminated in second place for $330,000.
