From the button, Foster Hays raised to 500,000. Casey Kelton reraised to 1.5 million from the big blind and Hays made the call, bringing the players to the flop. Kelton was up first and fired 1.5 million. Hays studied for some time and then put in a raise to 3.6 million, leaving himself with 2.195 million behind. Kelton studied for a few minutes and then moved all in. Hays quickly called.
Kelton needed to hit an ace on the turn or river in order to win the hand, but couldn't do so after the and hit the felt. It took the tournament staff a few minutes to get exact count correct before it was determined that Hays did indeed have Kelton covered and had won the tournament. Kelton earned $454,920 for his runner-up finish.
