Tournament Over! Kwaysser Wins!
Valdemar Kwaysser limps-in and Max Steinberg checks his option. The flop comes 9♥ 8♠ 8♣ and Steinberg leads out for $35,000. Kwaysser raises to $85,000 and Steinberg makes it $135,000 to go. Kwaysser raises yet again, this time making it $205,000 to go, and after a pause, Steinberg moves all-in. Kwaysser calls immediately, tabling a pocket pair of aces (A♥ A♦) and finding himself ahead of Steinberg's J♠ 9♦.
The Hungarian needs to fade a nine or some running cards to win the tournament, and after the turn is the 6♠ and the river the 4♥ he has done it, winning the PokerStars.net LAPT-San Jose tournament and $274,103 in prize money!
For his runner-up finish, Max Steinberg takes home $144,773. Congratulations to both finalists and special thanks to PokerStars for hosting this incredible event. See you in Punta del Este!
