It took 100 hands of heads up poker between Hossein Ensan and Dario Sammartino before a winner was declared.

That final hand won by Ensan was a dramatic one especially after he had lost the chip lead at certain points to both Sammartino and to Alex Livingston when there were three players left at the table and in the tournament.

Ensan had 345.5 million in chips before the final hand of heads up started. Sammartino had 169.5 million and with Ensan raising pre-flop with pocket Kings, his opponent decided to call with 8-4 of spades, a hand that could get him a flush or straight.

The flop was 10 of spades, 2 of diamonds and 6 of spades, giving Sammartino that flush draw, and he checked. Ensan bet 15 million and Sammartino called.

The turn was a 9 of clubs. Sammartino needed a spade for that flush or a 7 for a straight. He checked and Ensan bet 33M. Sammartino took a long look and shoved all-in. Ensan immediately called.

The river - a Queen of clubs - wasn't one of the 12 outs that would have helped Sammartino, giving the coveted bracelet to Ensan:

"It's unbelievable, I cannot understand this moment," Ensan said after, per ESPN. "I must go to sleep and wake up, and then maybe I know I have the bracelet."
