Down to just over 1.1 million and on the button, Mike Gorodinsky glanced at his stack a few times before pushing all in. Ben Diebold wasted no time at all and once more called instantly.

Mike Gorodinsky: {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Ben Diebold: {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

The pocket pair remained ahead on the {k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop and {9-Spades} turn. Gorodinsky had plenty of outs with his two overcards, gutshot and counterfeit outs. However, none of them appeared on the {5-Spades} river to end his bid for a third WSOP gold bracelet. Gorodinsky had to settle for second place and takes home $185,095 while Diebold has secured his first gold bracelet and a payday of $299,488.

A recap of the action and the winner's reaction are to follow.
