In the fourth hand of heads-up play, Raul Garza pushed all-in for 2,150,000 on the button and Benjamin Kaupp asked for a count in the big blind before he made the call.

Raul Garza: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Benjamin Kaupp: {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

The {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop and {10-Hearts} turn kept Garza still in contention. However, he found no help on the {5-Spades} river to become the second place finisher for $150,000. In a battle of the WSOP Circuit ring winners, it was Kaupp who came out on top as he earned his maiden WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize worth $250,000

A recap of today's action is to follow.
