Championship: 4th Place – Hans Winzeler ($70,000)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 20K/40K/5K ante

Hans Winzeler was able to get a much needed double, but so did Bruce Snell putting him back as the shortest. Action folded to chip leader John Dolan in the small blind and he put out enough chips to cover Winzeler’s entire stack.

He called off for his final 280,000 with Qd5c, two live cards against Dolan’s Kd8c. The 6s4c3c flop gave Winzeler an open-ended straight draw, Dolan hit the 8h turn, and dodged the straight outs on the Ks river to send Winzeler out in 4th place for $70,000.

The last three players are all guaranteed a six-digit payout.
