Matthew Gallin raised uner the gun only to have Steve Landfish raise from the small blind. The duo eventually got all their chips in the pot, and surprisingly both had the same exact amount of chips (290,000). Barring a chop, one player was going to be eliminated.
Landfish was dominated and in big trouble. We'd like to say he at least got a sweat out of it, but the board ran out a dry and Gallin's aces held. Landfish shook hands with the remaining player before heading to the payout desk to collect his $125,120. Not a bad showing for the man who finished runner-up in the $10K Stud Championship earlier in the week, which will no doubt push him toward the top of the WSOP Player-of-the-Year race.
