Max Young Defeats James Carroll to Win Main Event and $147,699!
Max Young (pictured) opens the button to 150,000, and James Carroll three-bets to 450,000 from the big blind. Young four-bet shoves with the larger stack.
"Well, I said I was going to go with it," Carroll sighs. He calls all in for what looks like exactly 3,000,000 chips, putting himself at risk.
Carroll needs to catch up in a hurry to stay alive, but he can not. The board runs out , and Young wins the pot and the tournament with a set of tens.
The victory is the second Circuit win this year for Young, who has been on something of a heater this fall. He won a big $1,600 event in Pennsylvania back in August for what was, at the time, a career-best score of about $120,000. He's improved on that here in Lake Tahoe, though, snagging his second ring and a new top payout.
Carroll is forced to settle for the runner-up consolation prize of $91,323.
