Kenny “Balls Of Steel” Broad was FaceTiming a lady friend as they were preparing the table for the heads up. “I’ve got to make it quick, I’m guaranteed 20 grand. It’s just me and my friend.” He turned the phone around to show him shaking hands with a grinning Jamie Walden and then ended the call with a quick goodbye. “I’m guaranteed second place,” he announced to the room in general, “First time ever. Never won a trophy in 40 years.”
He wasn’t going to win a trophy this time either.
The chips went in almost immediately, the cards like so:
Broad: Ad 9d
Walden: Qc Tc
Board: 5s 4d Qd 7h 6h
And that was that. Broad collected €20,760 in regular second-place money (we have no info on any bounties he may have collected earlier), and all the remaining envelopes went to Walden. Extraordinary.
