Mario De La Puente

Karl Manouchakian ground Mario De La Puente down to 465,000 and he put those in the middle from the button and Manouchakian had a chance to lock up the title.

De La Puente: AsKc
Manouchakian: TdTc

Manouchakian needed to win the race to take the title and faded the Qh3c2s flop. The 3h turn left De La Puente with six outs to stay alive and he hit the Ac river to double up.

A few hands later, with the board reading TcTh4h9s8h, De La Puente shoved for 705,000 and Manouchakian called.

De La Puente: Ts8s
Manouchakian: JdJh

De La Puente doubled again to a commanding lead with his flopped trip tens and rivered full house.

Mario De La Puente – 1,935,000 (77 bb)
Karl Manouchakian – 425,000 (17 bb)
