After getting a double-up with pocket 9s to draw even, Brett Streicher completes the comeback against Andre Lomans.

On the final hand both players are all in after the flop of Ks9c7d, with Lomans at risk for his last 8 million.

Streicher: KhQs (pair of Kings)
Lomans: Ts9s (pair of 9s)

Turn: 2d (no change)

River: 7h

Streicher’s pair of Kings hold giving him the title and the $74,000 first place prize.

“It may sound cocky, but I turned to my group (rail) and told them I was going to win,” says Streicher who began heads up play with a 4 to 1 chip deficit.

Streicher is a store manager who earns his first recorded live tournament cash.

In addition to the cash, Streicher wins a Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Summer Poker Open guitar and a $3,500 seat into the Championship Event (June 12-18).

“It’s a good problem to have,” says Streicher needs to time off from work.
