On the final hand of the tournament, Kevin Gerhart on the button, and Dustin Dirksen in the big blind, saw a flop reading {9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Dirksen fired out a bet on the flop and Gerhart called and called again when the {j-Clubs} peeled off on the turn.

The river brought the {k-Clubs} and Gerhart fired enough chips to put his opponent all-in. After a moment, Dirksen opted to make the call.

The hands were tabled and it was the {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts} held by Gerhart for one pair of Kings that bested the {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for one pair of jacks held by Dirksen, and the latter was eliminated in 2nd place and took home $115,440 in cash.

With this hand, Gerhart secured the victory and won his fourth coveted WSOP gold bracelet along with the $186,790 in first place cash.
