Level 32
Blinds: 125,000/250,000/250,000
Total Entrants: 312
Players Remaining: 1

Brandon Zuidema shoved all in for approximately 2,900,000 and Kaveh Roghanian called.

Zuidema: K8
Roghanian: AJ

The A32 flop put Roghanian well in front, but the K turn provided a sweat. However, the 9 river bricked out, and Zuidema was eliminated as runner-up for $8,319 + bounties following an epic heads-up battle that lasted over five hours.

Zuidema entered the final table with only a couple of big blinds and almost spun it up to a win but will have to settle for the runner-up consolation prize. Meanwhile, Roghanian was left with under two big blinds at one point during heads-up play and was able to secure four consecutive doubles en route to an unlikely victory to claim the trophy and $11,473 + bounties.

Kaveh Roghanian – 12,250,000
Brandon Zuidema – 0
