Fred Goldberg Wins Event 40!
It took more than an hour but Rene Mouritsen could not overcome Fred Goldberg's immense chip lead. Here's how the final hand played out:
Mouritsen and Goldberg both see a flop of J♥ 8♥ 4♥. Mouritsen bets out $40,000 and Goldberg raises to $140,000. Mouritsen pushes all-in and Goldberg calls. Mouritsen has 5♥ 2♥ for a flush but Goldberg has 10♥ 7♥ for the better flush. Mouritsen has a runner-runner straight flush draw but other than that he's beat. The turn is 5♦ which confirms his fate. The river is a meaningless K♠ and Goldberg has won his first bracelet!
Mouritsen earns $125,895 for his second place finish while Goldberg will be taking home $204,935 for first.
Congratulations to both players.
