TJ Cloutier was the most well-known player arriving for the third day but his 40th career WSOP final table wasn't in the books, he fell in 13th place. It took just over three hours for the final table to be determined.

When heads-up play began, Duval began to take control from Yahyaei. Jonathan Duhamel, 2010 World Champion, was on Duval's rail and may have added to the fire that fueled him to extend his chip lead.

The final hand came down to Duval min-raising to 200,000, and Majid Yahyaei calling. The flop brought the {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and Yahyaei put in a check-raise to 675,000 above Duval's 250,000 bet. Duval went all-in, and Yahyaei tanked and finally called.

Yahyaei: {q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Duval: {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

When the cards were tabled, both players had just queen-high, but Duval's queen-high had a flush draw to go with it. The turn brought the {10-Hearts} and the {8-Clubs} on the river gave Duval the win, who wasted no time in getting to his rail — can you say "run" — with his fists pumping the air in celebration!
