Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Runner-Up in the WSOP $25k Heads-Up Championship

On the button, Timoshenko limped in and faced an all-in move by Cody, who was clearly trying to bully his opponent into submission. The Ukrainian would not back down, however, and made the call with his {A-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Cody showed down the {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and found himself needing help to close out the match and claim his first WSOP bracelet.

Flop: {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

The British tournament phenom vaulted into the lead with his top pair and Timoshenko now needed to catch and ace to survive.

Turn: {6-Hearts}

Fourth street was a dead-end for Timoshenko and he was down to possibly his last card in his incredible run through one of the most difficult fields ever assembled.

River: {4-Diamonds}

The crowd let anyone who missed the action know exactly who had claimed victory, bursting into a rousing chant of "Triple Crown! Triple Crown!" as their countryman has now completed the most difficult feat in all of poker, winning an EPT, WPT and WSOP event.

Yevgeniy Timoshenko was extremely gracious in defeat and shook Cody's hand in congratulations. The Brit's emotions were written on his face as he exhaled deeply and broke into wide grin, obviously enjoying the unique atmosphere surrounding his crowing achievment.
