Dan Wach (Boonton, NJ)
Dan Wach overcomes a 9 to 1 chip deficit heads up to defeat Brian England.
On a board of Q♥ 10♥ 5♣ Q♣ 7♠, Dan Wach moves all in for 1.2 million and England calls. Wach turns over 10♣ 10♦ for the winning full house as England mucks.
"Heads up I ran pretty well," says Wach who earns his largest cash to date with $40,873. "I made very few mistakes, but late in the tournament you have to get lucky and things turned out for the best."
