Hand #149: Sean Yu Wins! ($260,000)

Level 36: 250,000-500,000, 75,000 ante

Champion Sean Yu
Sean Yu (pictured) raises to 1,750,000, Kareem Marshall reraises to 6,000,000, and Yu calls. The flop comes 10club8spade7club, and Marshall quickly moves all in.

Yu snap-calls with 10diamond7diamond for two pair, tens and sevens, and Marshall turns over AdiamondKdiamond for ace high. Marshall needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is the Jclub, giving Marshall a gutshot straight draw, but the river is the Aheart.

Sean Yu wins the pot -- and the tournament -- with two pair, tens and sevens.

Kareem Marshall finishes as the runner-up, earning $180,000.

Sean Yu wins the partypoker presents: WPT500 at ARIA Resort & Casino, earning $260,000, a seat in next year's event with accommodations at ARIA Resort & Casino, and a $2,000 package to travel and play in the partypoker presents: WPT500 at Dusk Till Dawn that is scheduled for November 11-16, 2014 in Nottingham, United Kingdom. Yu also receives a trophy from the WPT, and another trophy from the ARIA Resort & Casino.

Congratulations to Sean Yu!
