$1.5k H.O.R.S.E. - Van Alstyne is the Champion!
James Van Alstyne entered this heads-up match with a huge chip lead over opponent Tad Jurgens and he simply bullied his way to the title.
The victory will feel especially sweet, given Van Alstyne was pipped at the post five days ago in the $3k H.O.R.S.E. event by Canadian Zac Fellows.
This time round he made no mistake and dominated Jurgens to get his hands on the title.
Van's The Man!
The final hand saw Jurgens with less than three big bets in his stack on the Stud round and when he looked down at split deuces, he went with his hand.
It took till sixth street for Van Alstyne to make a pair but when he hit a pair of tens, Jurgens was deep in trouble and he never recovered, losing the hand and collecting $152,654 for his second place finish.
Van Alstyne however is the champion!
He wins $247,033 for his performance, as well as exorcising any demons that a bracelet might elude him having come so close just five days ago.
We send our congratulations to Van Alstyne for what was an excellent victory over a tough final table.
