The final table kicked off at 1:00 p.m. pacific on Saturday, Dec. 12, with poker professional, coach and author Alex Fitzgerald and comedian and poker player Clayton Fletcher hosting the action.
Greenwell made it down to heads-up play against Vanessa ‘Hernandezhh1’ Hernandez, a full-time mom and student at Midland College in Texas. Greenwell rivered a straight against the flopped top set of tens of Ben ‘spartan1122’ Fisher to take a 4.5:1 lead into the final showdown against Hernandez.
In the final hand of the event, Hernandez raised to 3,600 from the button with A7 and Greenwell three-bet to 9,600 with the K8 from the big blind. Hernandez called and the flop came down *76. Greenwell bet 17,472 and Hernandez raised to 34,962 in position. Greenwell moved all-in and Hernandez called to put her tournament life at risk. The 9 turn and Q river secured the pot and the title for Greenwell.
