John Gribben jammed on the button, and Chris Lindner called off his last 1.6 million in the big blind.

Chris Lindner: {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
John Gribben: {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}

The {j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop was safe for Lindner, but the {8-Clubs} turn paired Gribben up. Lindner needed a three to keep the heads-up battle alive, but the {a-Hearts} river earned Gribben the title, the trophy, and $30,000, prompting Gribben to yell, "I won this from a satellite!" while hoisting up the gold trophy.
