It was only the fourth hand of action before Dingxiang had to settle for runner-up prize money of $251,937. The Singaporean three-bet pre-flop on the final hand while holding K-Q.

Baron made the call with pocket bullets and was lying in wait as Dingxiang came out betting on the flop when his queen paired up. Isaac again simply called and did the same when Ong shoved all-in on the river.

The aces held up and Baron took home the title, capturing gold after a dozen years of trying. He overcame 1,832 entrants who were playing for $2,473,200 in prize money.

The victory pushed Baron over $6 million in lifetime cashes. His best score ever was the 2014 PCA Main Event in The Bahamas where a 3rd place finish boosted his bankroll $1,207,599. For Ong Dingxiang, it was his first cash on American soil and by far his biggest.
