Paul Snead

“This is supernatural,” former Paul Snead said of Joe Serock, his heads-up opponent for the $3,500 Signature NLH title. “He hits everything.”

Snead began heads-up action in a virtual tie with Serock, but that quickly changed.

The final hand saw Serock bet 55,000 after a 5d3d3c flop and Snead raised to 235,000 from his button. Serock called and then checked the 5s turn. Snead moved all in for 720,000 and Serock took his time to make a decision.

After a few minutes, Serock called and the hands were tabled.

Serock: TcTh
Snead: Qd9d

Serock was ahead the bigger two pair and Snead had 11 outs to double, a queen or any diamond that wasn’t a ten. The Kc river was a blank for our former TPC champ and Snead was sent out in the second spot. Serock earned the title, the trophy, and the $45,630 top prize.

1st: Joe Serock – $45,630 + SPS Trophy
2nd: Paul Snead – $30,420
