Hand #178: Will Failla Wins the WPT Legends of Poker
Level 37: 250,000-500,000, 50,000 ante
Will Failla moves all in for 20,650,000 and Ken Aldridge thinks for a little while before he calls with 64. Failla turns over J6, and Aldridge is dominated as he faces elimination.
The board comes KK7Q9, and Will Failla wins the pot -- and the tournament -- with his jack kicker.
Ken "Teach" Aldridge finishes as the runner-up, earning $365,800.
Will "The Thrill" Failla wins the 2011 WPT Legends of Poker, earning $758,085, a WPT Champions trophy, a Wild Bill Hickock trophy from the Bicycle Casino, and his prize money includes a $25,500 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship at Bellagio.
