In the second hand of the heads-up match, Hefter almost took out Diaz in a preflop all-in hand where he shoved from the button and got called by Diaz. The board choppes and Diaz was left with only 700,000 while Hefter was up to 8,000,000. With a few hands more Diaz got a few double ups to be back in the game.
For the last hand of the tournament, Hefter pushed his stack with an all-in move and got a call by Diaz. But this time around the community cards were totally in favour of Hefter and the heads up battle reaches a closure and the chips, the money and the WSOPE Berlin Event #4 bracelet went Hefter’s way at 3:40 a.m. Berlin time after a long 14 hours of game play. Hefter takes home a whopping sum of 176,205 Euro.
Gilbert Diaz walks away with 109,625 Euro for his second place finish and we have our 4th WSOPE Berlin bracelet winner. Congratulations to Ryan Hefter, the 1st WSOPE Berlin Monster Stack winner!
