Heads-up play in this event was between Michael Linn and Taylor Larkin.  Linn led 7.8 Million to 3.6 Million at the start of heads-up play.  Heads-up play lasted for a while but never got much past where he started at during heads-up.  The final hand between the two saw Larkin move all-in with Qh-Js against the Ad-2c of Linn.  A deuce on the flop put Linn in the lead and the turn and river were both baby cards to give Michael Linn his first bracelet.

Michael Linn wins his first WSOP bracelet and $609,493.  Congratulations.
