Just a few hands after the dinner break and we have our champion. The last hand of the tournament began when Nelson Robinson opened the button to 120,000. Rocco Palumbo then asked how much Robinson had, before three-betting to 300,000. A few moments thought and Robinson would four-bet all in. Palumbo shrugged and made the call and the two players turned their hands over.

Palumbo: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Robinson: {k-Spades}{6-Spades}

Robinson was behind and in need of some help. The {4-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{j-Spades} flop was the opposite of help and by the time the {4-Clubs} turn and the {k-Hearts} river had run out, it was all over for Robinson.

For his effort, Robinson takes home $288,448 which is added to the almost $250,000 he won for finishing in 33rd place in last year's World Series of Poker Main Event.
