Prizepool Information

The three final players all had very close chip stacks so they have decided to do an even three way chop and play one hand all-in blind for the trophy.

JeWook Oh, Seunghwan Lee, and Steve Berkowitz will all take home $53,350.

The final hand went as follows:

The dealer first ran the board out before any of the players looked at their cards.  The board came Q77♠9♠J♣.

Steve Berkowitz was the first to look and turned over the A.

"Come on queen," Berkowitz says. He then turns over the Q much to the surprise of all three players, leaving Berkowitz with two pair, queens and sevens with an ace kicker. 

Next to look was Seunghwan Lee who quickly turned over 9♣5♣ for two pair, nines and sevens.

JeWook Oh is last to look.  He first peels the 10 and says, "Oooooo, straight potential."  But it's the 6♣ he turns over next meaning that Steve Berkowitz is awarded the trophy. 

Congratulations to all three players on a well played match.
