Hand #48 - James Mackey Wins Event #22 ($730,740)

[user10554]
Hand #48 - James Mackey moves all in from the button, and Fox calls with {K-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Mackey shows {10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, and he'll need to improve to win the tournament on this hand.

The flop comes {Q-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, and Fox retains the lead with king high.

The turn card is -- the {10-Spades}. Mackey takes the lead with a pair of tens, and Fox needs a king (for a higher pair) or a jack (for a straight) to stay alive.

The river card is the {10-Clubs}, and Mackey wins the hand -- and the bracelet -- with trip tens.

Stuart Fox is eliminated in second place, earning $448,892.
