Nicholas Howard

Hand #101: Thomas Cazayous raised to 350,000 on the button, and Nicholas Howard called in the big blind.

Howard checked the {j-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop, and Cazayous bet 250,000. Howard called.

Both players checked the {9-Diamonds} turn, and the {2-Hearts} fell on the river. Howard bet 425,000, and Cazayous raised to 1.6 million. Howard three-bet shoved for 3.335 million, which sent Cazayous deep into the tank. After about three minutes, he sighed, then plopped a stack of chips in to call.

"You're going to win the tournament with that call," Howard told Cazayous before turning over {q-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a busted straight draw. Cazayous tabled his {j-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for two pair, and Cazayous is our champion!
