Mike Sowers had the button.

Greg Hobson was the bring in for 30,000. Mike Sowers moved all in before the flop and Hobson snap called.

Hobson: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Sowers: {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}

Hobson was ahead and needed to fade an ace to clinch the win. The {9-Spades}{k-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop obliged and Sowers was two cards away from being sent home in second place.

The turn brought the {9-Diamonds} and Sowers still needed one of the three remaining aces to continue heads up play. The dealer produced the {8-Clubs} on fifth street and Sowers was sent to the rail with a second place finish. Sowers will take home $158,887 for his efforts.
