On a flop of {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, Marcel Roosen moved all in and John Caldwell insta-called, turning over {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts} to Roosen's {3-Clubs}{4-Spades}. The turn was the {5-Hearts}, the river was the {9-Diamonds}, and Caldwell's railbirds erupted in raucous cheers as he took it down. Poker News' own editor-in chief is the champion of Event #4, while Roosen, who won entry to this event via a Poker News freeroll, is our runner-up.
