Alabama Cowboy Takes It - Hoyt Corkins Wins Event 30
It's all over. No surprise here but Hoyt Corkins has won Event 30. He was awarded the bracelet by Doyle Brunson himself. Terrence Chan has finished second, after a final hand that saw the Pride of Vancouver (that's Chan) raise and The Alabama Slamma (that's Corkins) move all-in. Chan (who, as we've all been reminded by classy Joy Miller, is not Johnny Chan), tanked for a few minutes but made the call, showing A♦ 4♦ to Corkins' K♦ T♠.
The flop came 9♠ 8♦ 8♥, keeping Chan in the lead, but the turn was the K♣ to give the cowboy the lead. The river card was the 6♠ and Corkins had the check-mark, winning his second WSOP bracelet and $515,065, as well as a prestigious PokerListings.com interview. Chan earns $287,345, which he will presumably not spend on a lifetime subscription to Playboy Magazine.
Congratulations to both finalists, and to the WSOP for yet another great tournament hidden from public view (that last bit was sarcasm, folks).
