This is how the final hand between Ty Remain and Harrinson Gimbel was played out in the PCA Main Event.

Ty Reiman raise to 620k before the flop, Gimbel answers with a re-raise of 1.8 million. Remain thinks for a moment before announcing that he's all in. Gimbel calls.

Remain: 8Diamond8Club
Gimbel: 10Heart10Club

FLOP 10Diamond6Diamond2Heart

Gimbel flop trips and Remain needs to get lucky on turn to have a chance to stay in the tournament.

The turn is an 8Heart. Now, Remain has trips as well. But unfortunately the win is far away as only 1 card in the deck can help him.

The river card is JSpade and it's over.

Harrison Gimbel, 19, did not only get $2,2 million dollars for the win, he also wrote history as he became the youngest PCA Main Event winner ever and also the first poker millionaire of 2010.

Final table results:
1st: Harrison Gimbel - $2,200,000
2nd: Ty Reiman - $1,750,000
3rd: Barry Shulman - $1,350,000
4th: Benjamin Zamani - $1,000,000
5th: Ryan D'Angelo - $700,000
6th: Aage Ravn - $450,000
7th: Zachary Goldberg - $300,000
8th: Tom Koral - $201,300
