The Heads Up
Imsirovic had 2,705,000 to Ivey’s 2,095,000 in the heads up. There was no looking back for the Ivey after calling the river bet with trips, which earned him the lead.

Imsirovic went all-in for his remaining 350,000 for Ivey’s bet for the flop which was Q, J, 3. Imsirovic decided to make the call with the top pair but was losing to Ivey’s aces. The turn showed 4 provided Imsirovic a gutshot draw. The 7 on the hand decided Imsirovic’s fate and went home with $416,000 for his second place. Ivey locked up the pot and secured first place.
