$5k NLHE Six-Max – Matt Hawrilenko Wins!
It took just four hands of heads-up to determine a winner in Event 56. In the final hand of the tournament Matt Hawrilenko popped it up to 1 million chips and Josh Brikis responded by announcing he was all-in.
Hawrilenko snap-called and tabled J♥ J♦ while Brikis showed A♦ 9♦. The entire audience was on their feet as the dealer prepared to put out the flop.
The flop came 8♦ 8♣ 2♥ and the Hawrilenko contingent of the audience went wild as their man was looking good with just two cards to come.
The turn came 3♠ and finally the river finished… T♣!
Hawrilenko wins $5k No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max!
The Full Tilt Pro will receive his first WSOP bracelet, $1 million in cash and an interview with PokerListings.com. Some players have all the luck!
Meanwhile Josh Brikis is obviously disappointed to be coming second place but he will have $619,609 to help ease the pain.
