Event 11 - Phil Tom is Champion!
The $5,000 Shootout is over. Shortly after doubling up with pocket jacks against a pair and a straight draw, Mueller's run of cards came to an end.
The final hand happened when Greg Mueller completed from the small blind and Phil Tom checked. Both players checked when the flop came down 9♦ J♥ 3♣. The turn came down the 5♥. Tom bet $150,000 and Mueller made it $350,000 to go. Tom thought for a little before shoving all in. Mueller made the call and turned over J♠ 8♦. Tom had him outkicked with his A♦ J♣. The turn and river were bricks and Tom dragged the pot, $477,990, and the bracelet.
Mueller will get a check for $298,638 for his second place effort. Tom takes $477,990 and the bracelet!
"Not that I didn't need the money, but it was all about the bracelet," said Mueller.
