Hand #197: Dan Smith limped the button holding {10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and David Peters shoved his big blind holding {A-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Smith folded.

Hand #198: From the button, David Peters shoved all in for 3,780,000, and Dan Smith quickly called for his 1,140,000 total from the big blind.

Peters: {K-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Smith: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Smith was at-risk, but in dominating shape, and when the {3-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Hearts} flop fell, Smith furthered his advantage in the hand.

Unfortunately for Smith, the dealer burned and turned the {K-Spades} on the turn to shift the advantage to Peters, and when the {6-Spades} completed the board on the river, Smith was eliminated in 2nd place for a $700,000 payday.

For Peters, he would collect the $1,150,000 first prize, and his second 2018 Poker Masters title for the series.
