Event 34 - Flack is Back!
This tournament is over! The 34th bracelet of this WSOP is out of the display case and on Layne Flack’s wrist. The sixth of Layne’s illustrious career, this one has earned him $577,725. Flack is a fixture on the tournament circuit and this win shows everyone that he’s still a force to be reckoned with.
Before Flack went heads-up with Dan Makowsky we saw Fernando Jacobo go broke in third. Read on for the final hand as well as that previous bustication.
Flack Stacks Mak
Dan Makowsky is no longer, falling victim to the steamroller also known as Layne Flack. On the final hand Flack potted from the button and Makowsky re-potted from the big blind. Flack re-raised again and Makowsky called all-in.
Flack: K♣ K♥ J♥ 2♠
Makowsky: A♣ K♦ 4♦ 4♠
The board ran T♣ 7♦ 5♦ 6♥ K♠ and Flack’s top set is more than enough to seal the deal and end this short-lived match. Makowsky is out as runner-up for $355,050 while Flack gets the big money and the trophy.
Fernandez Funked (3rd)
Jacobo Fernandez has been sent packing third and will grab $222,659 after running in to the Layne Flack machine. Daniel Makowsky limped and Fernandez made it $200,000 from the small blind. Flack called from the big blind and Makowsky said goodnight.
The flop fell 10♣ 10♠ 6♥ and after Flack potted it Fernandez shoved. Flack made the call with 6♠ 6♣ 4♥ 2♠ for the flopped boat against Fernandez’ A♣ A♠ K♦ 8♠. No surprises on the 4♥ turn or K♠ river and Fernandez goes out third and, oh by the way, he’ll take over top spot in the Player Of The Year race.
