He briefly surrendered the chiplead to Frank Covich, then took down a massive pot with KK against the AK of Covich and A6 of Jacob Moore to gain 80 percent of all the chips in play 3-handed. Covich was eliminated by Mark Geith, setting up the heads-up action.
The final hand had Geith reraising preflop to 860,000 and Al-Dbhany calling. Al-Dabhany flopped top pair and snap-called the all-in by Geith, who was holding K♦️ J♥️. Gieth turned a flush draw but didn't get there and the tournament was over.
Al-Dbhany wins $83,732 for taking the HPT Belterra title, and he also gets a $3,600 HPT Championship package, coming out to Thunder Valley Resort in northern California in late October for that event.
The next HPT stop is Ameristar Kansas City April 8-18, see you there.
