$2.5k Mixed Event - Ankenman Wins!
A short-stacked Sergey Altbregin made it all the way back around to No Limit Hold'em before finally succumbing in the $2,500 Mixed Event at the 2009 World Series of Poker.
Rival Jerrod Ankenman seized control of the heads-up match with a number of big pots in the Omaha 8 session before biding his time until No Limit Hold'em to clinch the match and his first World Series of Poker bracelet.
In the climactic hand, Altbregin limped-in on the button and Ankenman checked his option.
The flop came 6♦ 4♠ 3♣ and Ankenman led out for 50,000. Altbregin moved all-in for 400,000 and Ankenman made the call, turning up 6♣ 5♠ for top pair and the straight draw to counter Altbregin's J♦ 4♦ for second pair.
The turn was the 7♣ and Ankenman hit his straight, meaning the 9♦ on the river was nothing but academic: Ankenman had clinched the match, the bracelet and $241,637 in prize money.
For second place, Altbregin earns $149,342.
Congratulations to both finalists!
