Hand #71:

On the first hand in heads-up play, Paawan Bansal raised to 2,200,000, Joe Cada three-bet to 7,000,000 and Bansal four-bet ripped. Cada had no trouble making the call.

Bansal: {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Cada: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

The flop came {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and Bansal spiked five outs to get ahead. Cada's rail asked for a deuce to reduce some of Bansal's outs but the dealer had even better card up his sleeve. He turned up the {10-Spades} turn, leaving Bansal drawing dead and Cada's triumph got a cherry on top in the {10-Clubs} river for quads. Bansal was rewarded $378,765 for his runner-up finish.

After making the final table in the Main Event, Joe Cada provided another fabulous story, winning his fourth career bracelet and the $612,886 top-prize.
