Phil Willmeth had just 1,200,000 and he was in the big blind for 1,000,000. Donna Rohwer raised and Willmeth made the call for the last of his chips.

Willmeth: 8♣9♠
Rohwer: A♠9♥

The dealer spread the 8♦2♦4♥ flop and Willmeth’s supporters cheered as he flopped his eight to take the lead. The dealer burned and turned the A♥ and the cheers were even louder.

Rohwer had turned her ace to put a hammer lock on the hand. Willmeth would need only an eight on the river to stay alive but the 6♣ completed the board. The two shook hands as both players showed great sportsmanship. Willmeth is our runner up collecting a hefty $13,000 for his second place finish.
