Jeremy Joseph Eliminated in 2nd Place ($315,911); Bryce Yockey Wins
From the button, Jeremy Joseph raised to 360,000 and Bryce Yockey called in the big blind.
The dealer spread a flop and Yockey cut out a bet of 550,000. Joseph responded by announcing pot and being bound to a raise totaling 2,370,000.
Yockey announced he was all-in and Joseph called off his remaining 400,000 and the cards were placed on their backs.
Yockey was in the lead with his top pair and both players held a straight and low draw.
"Picture!" screamed Yockey as the dealer delivered the on the turn.
For Joseph, he would need an eight, seven, six or deuce to remain alive, but when the dealer burned and turned the board-pairing on the river, Joseph would be eliminated in 2nd place for a $315,911 payday.
As that river card landed, Yockey rushed to his rail to celebrate jumping up and down in excitement after having collected his first WSOP gold bracelet and the $511,147 first prize.
