Thomas Boivin limped the button, and Ben Maya raised to 280,000. Boivin moved all in, and once Maya was sure he had heard correctly, he called.
The board ran out . Boivin’s rail was shouting for an ace, but the king on the flop was another blow to their man’s hopes. By the turn, it was all over.
Boivin was gracious in defeat and had to settle for second place, while a tired Maya shocked himself and the tournament, with his first-ever WSOP cash ending up with a gold bracelet.
