Placey Pulls Off a Stunner

[user20283] • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

After a preflop raising war it was Peter Placey who ended up all in for 1,740,000 and he was up against Matthew Haugen, who started the day as the chip leader.

Haugen: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}
Placey: {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Spades}{6-Spades} and Placey made a flush, as four spades popped up. Placey couldn't believe what had happened and in shock he received the chips from Haugen.

Chip Counts
Peter Placey US 3,575,000 2,545,000
Matthew Haugen US 110,000 -1,490,000
