Chip Average: 8,400,000
Robert Campion (Stony Brook, NY)
After getting even with Peter Tripp after his elimination of Joe Kosko in 3rd place, Robert Campion actually took control of the chip lead for a short portion of play, before a massive hand played out that more or less decided who would take home the $75,000 GTD Event 7 title.

The action was picked up with Tripp limping from the button and Campion raising the action to 280,000.

Tripp would then three-bet to 575,000 and Campion would call to see a flop.

The [7h][4h][6d] fell and Campion would check to Tripp who announced himself "all-in".

Campion would snap call and just like that nearly 8,000,000 chips were in the middle with Campion poised to be victorious if he could win the hand.

He'd need to hit to do so though, as he held [Ah][2h] for the nut flush draw, against Tripp's top pair as he held [As][7d].

Both players would stand and await the turn and river, which would both brick out as the [9c] and [6c] completed the board.

Campion took a shot to win the title and had decent equity to win after flopping a massive draw, but he'd be cut down to just under 1,000,000 chips and would have a mountain to climb if he was to win this title.

He'd get a little life after doubling up to get back to near 2,000,000 chip mark, but was still sitting with just under 20 bigs after the blinds and antes again rose.

But, he'd be eliminated on the next hand after his double up as he turned a pair of eights on a board of  [5s][Kc][2d][8h] and both players got it all-in, with Tripp holding two pair as he tabled [8d][2h].

Campion would be left trying to turn his [Jd][8s] into a winner, with counterfeit outs serving as his best option to save his tournament life.

Nothing would come though as the [Qc] fell on the turn and Peter Tripp would be the Event 7 Champion.

Campion will make $18,000 for his runner-up finish, the biggest score of his tournament career.
