Kahle Burns made it 200,000 on the button, Alex Foxen shoved for 2,290,000, and Burns called in a cooler that saw both players peel ace-high. Burns had the better kicker.
The flop came and that pushed Burns on the one-yard line as Foxen needed running cards to survive. The turn gave Foxen two outs to hope for, but the river cemented Burns as the A$100K Challenge champion.
Foxen took A$1,111,590 for a second-place finish while Burns, who was inducted to the Australian Poker Hall of Fame earlier this week, picked up the A$1,746,360 top prize.
