Ryan Conner: {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Tyler Chabolla: {q-hearts}{8-Hearts}

The river was the {j-Clubs}. Romero checked and had the misfortune to pick up a check.

It’s because Romero had {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for a royal flush in the second hand of his 2022 Main Event. Monicatti laughed and turned around {a-Spade}{3-Diamonds}badly beaten.

Michael Wang

At the final table of 2022 BetMGM Poker Championship $3,500 Main Eventonly four players remained at level 29 (75,000/150,000/150,000) when Michael Wang opened at 200,000 with {q-hearts}{q-Clubs} and Joey Weisman re-raise to 2,500,000 from the small blind {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. Wang followed with slightly less when the action fell back on him.

The flop came {7-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} to give Weissman extra outings with a belly shot and the {10-Diamonds} on the turn gave him a flush draw to go with it.

Weissman then linked the {q-Diamonds} down the river for a Royal Flush runner-runner to beat Wang’s full queens, dispatching Wang in absolutely brutal fashion.

Wang picked up the pace like a champ and even let out a laugh of disbelief when the dealer pulled the card that condemned him out of the river.

“I feel stunned,” reacted Jamie Kerstetter. “I can’t imagine how he feels coming out. Ugh.”

Wang won $65,856 for finishing the tournament in fourth place, although he would go on to ship his second WSOP gold bracelet a few weeks later.
