Kim began heads-up with a nearly 5:1 chip lead over “bunsamillion,” and it didn’t take long for him to clinch the title. On the final hand, Kim moved all-in with K-9, and “bunsamillion” who had Q-7 called with his last 2.80 Million. The board ran 2-K-5-2-A giving Kim top pair to win his first gold bracelet.
