Event 12 - $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Day 3 Completed

And It's All Over -- Jimmy Shultz is the Champion of Event 12 ($257,105)

Zac Fellows was only sitting on 75,000 so the chips were always going to go in on this hand and they duly did preflop.

One more card to potentially end it...

{J-Hearts} !!

The flush comes to give Jimmy Shultz the winning hand and every chip left in the tournament. He becomes our 12th bracelet winner this year winning a cool $257,105.

Congratulations also go to our runner-up, Zac Fellows, who fought to the end and takes home $165,165 for his efforts.

To be honest it was never in doubt because Shultz had his lucky penny under his chair. He found it under his chair on Day One and has kept it under his chair throughout, as he thought it was bringing him luck. He wasn't too far wrong! Shultz had announced that he will be donating 25 percent of his winnings to Charlestown Fire Department so a big pat on the back to him for that genorous gesture.

Winning photos coming shortly.
