In the final hand of the tournament, Don McCormick limped holding the {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Eric “TABLECAPTAINN” Wemlinger checked his option with the {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

Both players checked the {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop and the dealer burned and turned the {a-Spades}. Wemlinger checked, McCormick moved all in, and Wemlinger called off for around 1 million.

Wemlinger was one card away from doubling but then the {5-Hearts} spiked on the river to give an elated McCormick the win with trip fives.
