Rob Anderson - Champion - $65,780


The short-stack with just 700,000 chips at one point in 5-handed play, Rob Anderson battled back and eventually found his way to $65,780 and the 2017 Poker Night in America Main Event title.

Anderson powered to a lead with strong play, almost had 3rd place finisher Ubaid Habib's full stack when both rivered trip 5's with Anderson's Ace able to play. Habib, however, found a fold but busted 5 hands later.

The major event was the next-to-last hand, Anderson 3-betting with AK and James Phamsopha 4-betting all-in with AT. Anderson held, leaving Phamsopha with just 7BB. One hand later and Anderson - with a career-best $3,155 cash to his name - went 20x by winning the title.

James Phamsopha - 2nd Place - $46,157


A big call that ended up putting James Phamsopha on the wrong end of AK v AT cut Phamsohpa down to just 7BB. He was all-in the next hand K3 v A7 against Rob Anderson, and there was an Ace on the flop.

Phamsohpa - the Day 2 start-of-day chipleader - takes second place, cashing for $46,157.

Ubaid Habib - 3rd Place - $29,690


Ubaid Habib had to lay down trip 5's 5 hands ago - it was the right laydown to a better kicker from Rob Anderson - and now he faces a 5x preflop raise from James Phamsopha. With just 12BB total, Habib looks down at KQ and moves in, only to see Phamsopha snap-call with QQ.

There's no improvement and Habib is out in 3rd, a $29,690 cash.

Phamsopha Phlops it


Ubaid Habib opens for 125,000, James Phamsopha (above) and Rob Anderson both call. The players all check the Kc Kc Kc flop, then Anderson makes it 225,000 on the Kc turn. Habib moves all-in to put both Phamsopha and Anderson at risk. Phamsopha undershoves, and Anderson seems pained by the fact he lets his cards go.

Habib - 33 for a turned set
Phamsphoa - Kc Kc for the flopped nut flush, but he needs to dodge the board pairing to hold.

The river is Kc and there's a double.

Ubaid KO's @KyleK_Poker, Drake


Kyle Kitagawa moves in for his last 287,000 (11BB), Ubaid Habib (above) calls, Sean Drake moves in for his last 313,000 and Habib calls both bets.

Kitagawa - Kc Kc
Drake - Kc Kc
Habib - Kc Kc

The Kc Kc Kc pairs both Drake and Kitagawa, also gives Drake a backdoor flush draw as each look to come-from-behind to crack Kings and stay alive.

Turn is Kc, the flush draw is alive for Drake ..

River ... Kc, a double-elimination for Habib to move to the chiplead.

Kitagawa was the shorter stack, so he cashes in 10th for $4,794.
Drake picks up 9th, a $6,581 cash.
