Andrew Rennhack Wins WSOP Event #26 and $408,953

Event #26, $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em has come to an end at the World Series of Poker and Andrew Rennhack was crowned the winner after three days of play, beating 1,594 other for the title and the bracelet.

The final day had 12 players starting up and after around 10 hours of play, the final table was down to its last two players who were about to play the very last hand of the tournament. Rennhack is at this time playing against Michael Katz, who were looking to win the tournament throughout the day as he had the chip advantage, but threw it all away in the end.

The final hand was the 196th hand of the final table and starts out by Rennhack limping into the big blind and Katz pushing all his chips to the middle for an all-in. Rennhack tanks for a while and decides to find a call that could either cripple him or let him win.
