May 6, 2015

Sheraz Nasir Wins
Lu Zhang raises to 525,000, and Sheraz Nasir calls.

Both players check to the turn on a board of Jdiamond6spade3spade6heart, Nasir bets 500,000, Zhang moves all in for 1,750,000, and Nasir calls with 2spade2diamond for an underpair.

Zhang turns over Aspade2club for ace high, and she needs to improve to stay alive.

The river card is the 7diamond, and Sheraz Nasir wins the pot — and the WPT title — with pocket deuces.

Lu Zhang finishes as the runner-up, earning CAD $166,402.
