Event 14 – Final Table – Fu Makes Wong Move, Eric Brooks Crowned Champion
After less than an hour of heads-up play Eric Brooks has defeated the awesomely-named Fu Wong. The most important hand saw Brooks make a big call with two-pair to beat Wong, who only showed a couple of kings.
The hand crippled Wong down to the $450,000 and despite grinding it out for several hands Wong finally succumbed to Brooks constant raises.
In the final hand of the tournament Wong got it all-in on fourth street with the board reading:
Brooks: (A♥)(5♠)5♦ 3♦
Wong: (T♣)(4♣)A♣ 4♥
After the players flipped over their cards the board finished:
Brooks: …A♦ 7♦(Q♦)
Wong: …2♥ 4♦(9♣)
Brooks flush wins him the tournament! The relatively unknown player will be donating the entirety of the $415,856 for first place to charity. Meanwhile Wong will receive $259,910 for finishing second. Congratulations to both players and everyone that played the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship event.
