Brent Hanks in earlier WSOP action.

Brent Hanks began the day on a short stack, and he's played patiently waiting for a spot. He finally found it when he was in the cutoff and committed his last 4,975. Ronny Schimpf didn't seem too excited to call from the big blind, but he did so nonetheless.

Hanks: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Schimpf: {k-Hearts}{10-Spades}

"Yup, woke up with it," Hanks said when Schimpf commented on his prime holdings. Hanks was ahead, and he managed to make a set on the {j-Spades}{q-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop. However, Schimpf managed to pick up an up-and-down straight draw. The {6-Diamonds} turn was of no consequence, but the {a-Hearts} was as it completed the aforementioned straight.

With that, Hanks' 2014 WSOP has come to an end.
