Patrick held AK offsuit.  Gil held pocket Aces (again!).  The flop came Q J 5, giving Patrick a glimmer of hope with a Broadway draw, but the last two fell 7 K and Gil took the pot.

Patrick Carney finished in 6th place, earning $103,425.

Patrick was born in nearby Philadelphia, but now lives in Galloway, New Jersey.  For the last 3-4 years, poker has been his profession, despite graduating from law school.

Prior to today, his biggest finish was in the Borgata Poker Open WPT Championship in September 2008.  He finished 14th for $47,500.
