After hours of one of the most hard-fought heads-up battles of the World Series of Poker, in the end it all came down to a lucky turn of the cards for Blair Rodman. Rodman moved in pre-flop with A♣ J♦ to be called by Amato Galasso on the button holding A♦ K♣.
It looked like a great opportunity for Amato Galasso to double up and take the chip lead, but the flop pulled the rug out from under him, coming J♠ 5♦ 4♣. The turn brought the 3♥ for a possible chop with any two, but the river brought the Q♣ to seal the deal. Rodman took $707,898, a Corum watch and the bracelet; while Galasso made $448,808 for second place.
