Was there really any doubt? It almost seemed that Naoya Kihara was destined to win this.
The final hand came when Kihara raised from the button and De Maci called from the big blind. The flop fell and De Maci check-raised Kihara's 160,000 c-bet up to 550,000. Kihara set De Maci in for his remaining 450,000. Call.
Kihara: for a pair of jacks.
De Maci: for a pair a straight wrap.
The board ran out to the the man from Japan two-pair and the title.
Congratulations to De Maci who put in a valiant effort these past three days. He played with a smile and was never afraid to put chips in the middle.
