Joe Gotlieb Wins the Ring and $257,638!
Asher Conniff limps the button, and Joe Gotlieb raises to 1,050,000 from the big blind. Conniff moves all in for 8,600,000, and Gotlieb calls to put him at risk, putting 95 percent of the total chips in the middle. Suitably, it's a coin flip.
"Racing for all of it," Conniff tells his rail. "Literally all of it."
The board runs out , and Gotlieb wins that race.
The dealer begins counting down the stacks, but Conniff knows the result already. "He has me covered," he says quietly. The dealer verifies, and that's that.
Gotlieb wins the Main Event, collecting the diamond-studded ring, $257,638 in cash, and a seat to the Global Casino Championship.
Conniff finishes as the runner-up, earning $159,357.
