Francois Safieddine Wins Event 19 ($521,785)
After going back and forth for the better part of an hour Francois Safieddine has beaten John "The Razor" Phan in heads-up play. The final hand went down like this:
Safieddine was the 4-1 chip leader when he moved all-in and Phan immediately called. Safieddine showed 4♥ 4♦ but Phan flipped over A♥ A♠. Phan's section of the crowd went crazy. The flop comes J♠ 8♣ 2♣ and Phan's family starting cheering as well. The turn comes 5♥ and it appeared that Phan had the hand in the bag but that's when the poker god's frowned on Phan. A devastating 4♠ appears on the river giving Safiddine a set of fours. Safiddine's section of the audience goes insane.
Safieddine has won his first bracelet and Phan will have to wait another day for his. Safieddine takes home $330,846 for his efforts.
