1st Place: James Carroll ($1,256,550)

Dylan Wilkerson raised preflop and James Carroll made the call.  The two see a [9c][4h][2s] flop, and James check raises Dylan's bet.  Dylan makes the call, and the turn comes the [2c].  After James checks, Dylan moves all in for more than a pot sized bet.  James thinks for less than a minute and makes the call.

Dylan [Ah][5c]
James [6s][4d]

It's a great call for James as his second pair is good against Dylan's ace high.  If his hand holds up, James will be the next World Poker Tour champion.

The [Qh] hits the river, which means James and his pair of fours win the pot, the tournament, and the title.  James takes home $1,256,550 including his WPT Championship Seat.

Congratulations, James!

2nd Place: Dylan Wilkerson ($728,650)

3rd Place: Shaun Suller ($477,470)


After checking a [Kc][4d][2s] flop, Shaun Suller check-called James Carroll's bet on the [Jc] turn.  Both players went crazy after the [Qs] hit the river, getting their chips in the middle.  When the dust settled, the players opened their hands:

Shaun: [Qd][Js]
James: [Ah][Ts]

The river had made Shaun two pair, but it had also given James the nuts.  Shaun would dejectedly accept his 3rd place finish and the $477,470 that goes along with it.

4th Place: Mukul Pahuja ($320,800)


Mukul Pahuja is all in with a dominating [Ah][Qd] against Dylan Wilkerson's [Qc][Ts].  Mukul had been unlucky earlier in this final table, so if he could avoid being unlucky again, he would double up to over 3 million.  But Lady Luck was not on his side, as the [As][Kd][Js] gave Dylan an unbeatable straight.  Mukul could only chop with a ten, and the turn came the [8h].  With only one more shot at staying alive, the river fell the [7h], and Mukul slowly left the table as our 4th place finish.  Mukul collects a $320,800 payday for his efforts.

5th Place: Nam Le ($223,810)


Nam Le is all in for 565,000 with [As][3d] and James Carroll makes the call from the big blind holding [5h][5c].  The board runs out [2d][Qh][Jd][2s][Tc] and Nam will be our 5th place finisher.  He collects $223,810 for his appearance today.

6th Place: Garrett Greer ($174,080)


Garrett Greer was all in with [9h][9c] but was up against Dylan Wilkerson's [9h][9c].  Garrett would need to catch an eight to survive, but he could not find it on the [Js][6c][4h] flop.  Even worse, the [9d] hit the turn to leave Garrett drawing dead.  The river was the meaningless [Tc], and Garrett will exit this tournament in 6th place, good for $174,080.
