1st Place: Marsel Backa ($65,191)

Marsel Backa and Long Tran made a deal to chop 1st and 2nd place money as they are friends. After a few hands of raising and re-raising, the two finally got it in. Marsel had said that he had looked at one card as he revealed his [Kc][Jh], and Long hadn't looked as he flipped over his first card, the [Ac]. His second card was the [9s], so he was in good shape to double up. Marsel said he'd win the pot for sure, and the [2d][9h][Ks] put his king jack in front. The [7d] turn changed nothing, and the [Tc] river meant Long Tran would exit the tournament in 2nd place, good for $65,191.

Marsel Backa has won the $1,650 Championship Event, taking home $65,191, the trophy, and the title. Congratulations, Marsel!
