"Alright, you win," Ross said while moving all in and Moncek snap-called with {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for a flush. Ross had two pair with {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

The river came the {8-Diamonds} and Moncek's flush was enough to eliminate Ross in second place and earn the Chicago native his first WSOP bracelet and $145,856 first prize.
