On the final hand of this semi-final Jason Mo raised to 160,000 from the button and Brock Parker called. The flop came down {K-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{q-Clubs} and Parker checked. Mo threw out a 185,000 chip bet and Parker moved all in. Mo called right away and tabled {K-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Parker was trailing with {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} but he still had outs and a back door flush draw. The turn was the {3-Hearts} and Jason Mo's friend went from rooting for a deuce to shouting, "Oh my god, oh my god!".

The river was the {10-Spades} and that ended Parker's run in third place. Mo was very pleased with his victory and he will match up with Brian Hastings for a chance at winning a gold World Series of Poker bracelet!
