Jack Duong’s massive chip lead proved insurmountable for Ari Engel. He tried, but the cards did not fall his way. On the final hand, they got to the turn with the board showing [kd][tc][9d][8h]. Ari bet about half his stack. After giving it some thought, Jack raised enough to cover Ari’s remaining chips and Ari called all-in.
Jack held [ks][5s] for top pair. Ari had [td][2d] for second pair with flush draw, so he had outs to survive, but the river brought the [9h] which was no help to Ari.
Ari Engel finished in 2nd place, earning $29,538. This will push his career earnings past $4.6 million.
