The Heads-Up

After eliminating most of the players on the final table, Brown was also the 2:1 chip leader and a favorite to win the event. After a few pots, Troha was getting closer in chips and, at some point, was chip leader. The final hand happened when Troha opened the BTN, got a 3-bet from Brown, went for a 4-bet, and Brown called.

Brown was holding AQ106 against Troha’s KKQ3, who was ahead with one hand on the title. The board was K10229, and Troha was the winner, eliminating Brown, who was the favorite. Brown earned $357,807 for his second-place finish.
