Frank Weigel had a big lead going into heads-up play and only extended it over the first few hands. Harry Binda Jr was down to 425K, moved all in from his button, and Weigel called.
Weigel showed and was surprised when Binda Jr told him he was ahead. He shoved with and was in trouble.
“Run it clean one more time dealer!” Weigel asked.
The flop came followed by the turn. It looked like a chopped pot, both with fours and deuces, but the river gave them both two pair tens and fours, and their kickers played.
An odd but fun hand to end the PPO Championship with Binda Jr earning $40,070 as the runner-up and Weigel taking home $60,190 for the title.
