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.
The flop came 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 turn, leaving Bansal drawing dead and Cada's triumph got a cherry on top in the 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.
