Saif Steamrolls Jensen For the Win
He started with a chip deficit but it didn't take long for Saif Ahmad to reverse the trend, basically sucker-punching heads-up opponent William Jensen into submission over a 30-minute heads-up match that saw Ahmad gobble up chips like a voracious hellfire.
On the final hand, Jensen raised preflop and was called by Ahmad. The flop came K♥ J♦ 2♠ and Jensen moved all-in for the last of his stack. Ahmad called with Q♥ 4♥ to Jensen's K♦ J♣ and Jensen looked to be in good shape to double up. The turn was the Ts, giving Ahmad a few more outs to take the bracelet, and the river was the A♠ as Ahmad hit running cards to make Broadway and take down the title.
For the win, Saif Ahmad earns $217,329, a WSOP bracelet and an exclusive interview with PokerListings.com, while Jensen earns $133,151 for second place as well as no interview and the ignominy of being razzed by friend and 2007 bracelet winner Alex Borteh about his inability to seal the deal. Alway be closing, William - and congratulations, Saif!
