On the live stream shortly before the dinner break, Mickey Craft opened to 125,000 in early position, and Michael Ruane three-bet to 325,000 in middle position. Craft called, and they saw a {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop. Craft moved all in for about 1,500,000, and Ruane called.

Craft had {7-Clubs}{2-Spades} for a pair of sevens, but he was behind Ruane's {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

Craft was on his feet, and Ruane stared intensely at the board as the {J-Clubs} came on the turn, followed by the {8-Clubs} on the river.

Ruane celebrated with a clap and Craft looked over at his new fiance with a shrug.

In his exit interview with Kara Scott, Craft mentioned he had a great time in the Main Event. He said of the tournament, "This means absolutely nothing," and in regard to his fiance, "I have her for life."

After a romantic run in the Main Event and a romantic exit interview, Craft made his way to the payout desk to collect his $53,247.
