After a raise from Toby Lewis, Dennis Blieden reraised to 300,000. Lewis fired backed with another raise to 750,000, and Blieden called. The flop came down [6d][3s][6s], and Blieden check called a bet of 400,000. The [Qh] came on the turn, and Blieden checked again. Lewis moved all in, and Blieden immediately asked for a count. "I don't think I "can get away from this," Blieden said. Not long after, he made the call.

Blieden: [As][Qd] 
Lewis: [10c][10s]

The turn shot Blieden out into a dominating lead, and now Lewis would beed a ten to survive. The river brought the [6h] though, and Blieden took down the hand, and the title!

It cannot be overstated how impressive a run Lewis had to finish runner up, just a few weeks after winning the Aussie Millions Main Event for $1 million, but he will have to settle for second tonight. 

Your winner of the 2018 LAPC Championship, Dennis Blieden will take home a cool $1 million, and a seat to the Tournament of Champions later this year.

Congratulations to all six final table players today, and thank you to everyone who followed along with our coverage in this event, and all series. See you in May for the Cal State Poker Championship!
