In a heads up match that saw few hands go beyond fourth street, the turning point occurred when Dinkin, showing 10H 9S 7S 5C, mucked his hole cards to Pat Poels’ (AH KC 5H 2S) set of kings. The pot put Poels over $1,000,000 and left Dinkin with less than $200,000 in chips.

Short stacked, Dinkin pushed the all in with 10H 9S 7S 5C and Poels made the call showing KS QH QS JH. After the river card, Poels called his hand as a pair of queens with no low. Dinkin showed a pair of nines as his best hand and Poels eliminated him from the tournament.

Dinkins’ second place finish paid $102,542 in prize money.

Poels, who won last year’s $1,500 Omaha eight-or-better event, took home his second WSOP bracelet and a $172,091 first place cash prize.
