Cory Carroll has the button, he raises, Little moves all in, and Carroll instantly calls with [Ah 7d]. Little shows [As 2s], and he’ll need to improve to win the tournament right here.
The flop comes [10d 5c 2h], and Little pairs his deuce to take the lead. Carroll now needs to catch a seven to stay alive.
But the turn card is the [2c], and Little clinches the hand — and the tournament — with trip deuces. (The meaningless river card is the [Qh].)
Cory Carroll is eliminated in second place, earning $561,966.
Jonathan Little wins the 2007 WPT Mirage Poker Showdown, earning $1,091,795. Congratulations, Jonathan!
