Final Table Action

Event 21 final table

With six players to start the final table, one of them had to be the first to fall and after a few levels went by that person was Dylan “thedogsofwar” Wilkerson. Wilkerson was heads-up against Michael “BrockLesnar” Holtz after a queen-high flop and Wilkerson called off his stack with a pair of jacks. Wilkerson was ahead but Holtz turned a king to eliminate him in sixth place.

A few hands later, Holtz continued with another elimination after he turned two-pair to send Troy “troyrlee” Lee home in fifth place.

Ben “WhyIsGamora” Yu, along with Ruben, were the only two players at the final table who already had a WSOP bracelet to their name, but Yu’s hope of securing another came up short after he failed to crack Ruben’s queens and fell in fourth place.

With the final three players sitting fairly even, the action was slow for the first few levels until Alex “OrcinusOrca” Foxen decided to gamble and called off his stack on the turn holding the nut flush draw but was set up by Ruben in third place.

The heads-up battle saw Ruben hold the majority of the chips in play and he made quick work of Holtz to earn his second WSOP bracelet.
