Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Justin Filtz Eliminated in 2nd Place ($499,855); Matt Jarvis Wins!

Shamus • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Justin Filtz - 2nd place

On the fifth hand of Day 4, Justin Filtz had the button. He checked his cards, and without too much deliberation announced he was all in for his last 2 million. Matt Jarvis immediately called.

Filtz {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Jarvis {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}

Jarvis had the preflop advantage. Both players stood behind their chairs to await the delivery of the community cards.

"Ace!" cried the Jarvis supporters. The flop came {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. "Hold!" came the revised cheer.

The turn was the {2-Spades}, and Filtz was down to one last chance for a saving king or nine to win, or a four to chop. The dealer burned and turned over the river -- {3-Diamonds}! A loud roar erupted from the stands, and Jarvis, fist in the air and a huge grin on his face, raced over to hug his supporters. He soon walked back over and shook Filtz' hand, with both agreeing it was a tough, memorable battle.

It's over! After three long hours of heads-up last night, Day 4 concludes in less than five minutes with Justin Filtz taking second and Matt Jarvis winning his first WSOP bracelet!
