Ralph'd! Schwartz is the Winnar!
Ralph Schwartz raises from the button and is called by Bill Gazes in the big blind. The flop comes Q♠ 6♣ 4♥ and Gazes bets out. Schwartz raises to $60,000 and Gazes makes the call. The turn is the 3♥ and Gazes checks. Schwartz bets out and Gazes, who would have to call all-in to continue, tanks.
He sits lost in thought for a few minutes before finally making the call and showing K-K-7-6 to Schwartz's 8-5-3-2 for a pair of kings to Schwartz's six-high straight. The river is the 2♠ and Schwartz earns the check-mark, scooping the pot and winning his first World Series of Poker bracelet!
For his runner-up finish, Gazes earns $153,408, while first-place Schwartz takes home $275,683, as well as the bracelet and the glory of an exclusive PokerListings.com interview. Congratulations to both finalists!
