1st Place: Joseph McKeehen ($61,285)

After a grueling heads up match, Joseph McKeehen had grinded Peter Everett down to about 10 big blinds, and Peter got the last of his chips in with [Qc][5c] against Joseph's [As][9c].  The board ran out a clean [8s][2d][8c][8h][6c] to bring this lengthy final table to a close.  Joseph will earn a $61,285 payday along with the title, the trophy, and the watch.  Congratulations, Joseph!

2nd Place: Peter Everett ($39,835)

Joseph McKeehen doubles through Peter Everett right before break

Chip leader Peter Everett
Joseph McKeehen and Peter Everett are still heads up, and both players have had the chip lead at points in the match.

Just before the break, Joseph was all in with [Qd][6d] on a [Qc][Tc][5d][6s] board against Peter's [As][Qs].  The river bricked off the [9h] and Joseph doubled up.

Currently it's Peter in the lead with approximately 2.1 million to Joseph's 1.7 million.  Players have elected to skip the break, and the blinds are now 25,000/50,000 with a 5,000 ante.

Joseph McKeehen fights back to double through Peter Everett

Joseph McKeehen watches the river save his tournament life
Peter Everett moved all in preflop and Joseph McKeehen snap called.  It was another preflop cooler as Peter had [As][Qc] against Joseph's [Kh][Kc].  The [5c][Ah][Qs] flop was huge for Peter as he flopped two pair, leaving Joseph needing a king to survive.  The [Jd] turn opened a few more outs for Joseph as he could make a straight with a ten.  Miraculously, the [Td] popped up on the river.  "Bink city," yelled one of Joseph's supporters.  Joseph doubled up to about 1.4 million, and Peter dropped to around 2.6 million.

Peter Everett doubles through Joseph McKeehen

With almost all of the chips on the line, Peter Everett got all in against Joseph McKeehen on a [Ad][4d][5h].  Peter was in great shape to double up as he had flopped a set with [4s][4h], up against Joseph's [Ac][Kd].  Joseph picked up a flush draw on the [Td] turn, but the [Qc] on the river locked up a double for Peter.

3rd Place: Steve Happas ($26,400)

With the board reading [2c][Td][9c][9h], Steve Happas moved all in and was snap called by Joseph McKeehen.  Joseph flipped over [Ts][Th], and all Steve could say was, "What a set up" as he tabled his [Ad][9s].  Steve was drawing live to a one-outer, but the [5h] river wasn't it.  Steve earns $26,400 for his 3rd place finish.
