Page 1 of 2Day 2 Final COMPLETE
by Sharla Lehrmann
In first place we have Derek Harrington. He wins $41,555. He receives his gold WSOP Circuit ring from Michael Cravatt.
In the final hand of the game Derek raises to 7K and Thomas moves all in. Derek calls immediately. Thomas shows a pair of jacks and Derek a pair of tens. The flop brings sweet lovin' to Derek when it comes Th As Ah for a great little ocean liner. The 2s comes on the turn and Thomas has only 4 outs now. The river comes a Kh and we all look a the chips to see who covers whom. Lo and behold, Derek had about 30K more than Thomas and we lose Thomas Wilson in 2nd for a great showing. He wins $23,086.
Thomas is speaking in the 3rd person now. Not sure why. When it comes to his action, he says "Thomas is all in". OK....
Three hands later, Men and Derek go head to head again. Men goes all in and Derek calls again. Derek shows the Ac 3s and Men the Ts 9h. The board comes the 5d 8h Qs. Men calls for a J, 9 or T. The turn is a Kc. Men begs for a J, 9 or T. The river comes a 2d and Men "The Master" Nguyen takes 3rd for $12,697.
Men is all in for 8,500. Derek calls for the extra 6500. Men shows the J 9 and Derek the Q 5. The board kisses Men with a 2c 3s 9s 8s T and he doubles up.
Derek raises from the small to 7K. Men calls. The flop comes 8s 2s 3d. Derek must act first. Both check. Turn comes the Qh. Bet goes all in and Men rubs his hands together and finally folds.
I think the coronas are making Men exta happy. A deal was struck before the final 5 and now the game is for the ring. Thomas really wants the ring and Men is being b oisterous and saying he needs another.
Thomas raises from the bb and Men yells " Ah AH AH AH..." and folds.
6d 6c Td. Both Men and Derek check. 7d on the turn and he bets out with an all in from Men. Men takes the pot.
We will wait for a hand now as the blind/ante stealing abounds.
Derek has the button. He folds to Men in the small. Men folds and ships it to Thomas.
Button is on Thomas. Derek limps and Men says "aw, gimme respect,,,,just call me". He takes a swig of his corona and says to Thomas, "you want him to attack me dont you". Thomas says, "no, I want it to be you and me". Derek ends up with the pot with two pair.
