After a see-sawing heads up battle which saw both players battle the short and big stacks, it was inevitable that at one point someone was going to hold in a coinflip.
On this occasion we saw Sadan Turker ship for just under 4 million as Sean Getzwiller made the quick call.
With Getzwiller holding both the chip and hand advantage, both rails rallied hard cheering for numerous cards such as the ace, nine or five.
The dealer spread out the flop, and when it was in full light, it read to give Getzwiller middle set and leave his opponent Turker outs to only runner-runner. As Getzwiller shot up with joy and turned to his rail to celebrate, he remembered that poker can often be a cruel game, and quickly spun round to return to the table to sweat any gut-churning runner-runner combos that could see this gold bracelet slip easily from his jungle-man like grip.
With Turker needing a three or deuce to retain any chance in this brutal heads-up match, the dealer would plank the on the turn to end this London-locals dreams of becoming the third Brit in a few days to take home the gold.
The dealer placed the meaningless on the river, and as Turker stood up vacated his seat, Getzwiller rushed over from his railbirds to congratulate Turker on a sensationally well played tournament that saw him collect $377,411 in prizemoney.
