Another button push by Jason Koon was this time called and Gabor Szabo ended up at risk for the second time during this heads-up duel.

Gabor Szabo: {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Jason Koon: {j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

As the flop fell {j-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}, Koon took the lead and said "that's a good start" while his rail was gearing up for the festivities. Szabo picked up a gutshot on the {8-Diamonds} turn but bricked the {6-Hearts} on the river to see his run end up in 2nd place for $150,790.

Koon erased his name from the list of "best players without a bracelet" and scored his maiden gold bracelet along with the top prize of $243,981 only days after he was announced as the newest GGPoker global ambassador.

A recap of today's action is to follow.
