Kirsch announces all in and Coelho quickly calls.
Coelho’s flush with the pocket kings is enough to beat the eight-high flush of Kirsch. Coelho begins to celebrate, picking up the trophy and putting a big kiss on it.

Kirsch earned $84,407 for the runner-up finish while Coelho takes home $120,419 for the win along with a $2,000 WPTDeepStacks Championship package.
