Frank Weigel opened to 55,000 from the cutoff and John Canawati shipped for 575,000 from the button. The blinds folded and Weigel quickly called.

Canawati: AhKc
Weigel: JcJh

It was a final table race and Canawati needed to improve his big slick to double up. Weigel faded the 6d5s2s flop, Canawati missed the 3d turn but added a gutshot wheel draw. The Ad river was good news for Canawati and he doubled into the lead.

John Canawati – 1,200,000 (60 bb)
Frank Weigel – 550,000 (28 bb)
