Hand #126: Chance Kornuth opened to 400,000 and Harrison Gimbel three-bet to 1,200,000. Kornuth four-bet, making it 2,660,000 and Gimbel five-bet shoved. Kornuth called.

Gimbel: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Kornuth: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

A sick cooler for the bracelet was a board away for Gimbel. The dealer fanned out {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{6-Hearts} and Kornuth's run came to an abrupt halt, falling in second place. Kornuth takes home $399,132 while Harrison Gimbel becomes a new WSOP champion, banking $645,922 and a shiny, new gold bracelet.
