Keith Lehr won his second World Series of Poker gold bracelet after taking down one of the premier events of the summer Thursday: the 2015 WSOP $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship.

Lehr collected $334,430 in first-place prize money after defeating Paul Volpe in a relatively quick final match that lasted just 24 hands. Lehr took control of the match in the 16th hand, three-betting with the {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades} after Volpe opened the button with the {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Volpe called, and Lehr continued after flopping top pair of jacks. Volpe floated with a gutshot and bet a brick on the turn after Lehr checked. Lehr called, and check-called another 1.2 million-chip bet when the river also bricked to take down the sizable pot.

In the final hand, Lehr turned top pair against Volpe's flopped two-pair and all the money went in before Lehr made a second pair on the river, sending Volpe to the cage to collect $206,620 in second-place money.

Lehr won his first gold bracelet in the 2003 WSOP $3,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em tournament defeating Chris "Jesus" Ferguson heads up. This time around he beat Jake Schindler, Valeriu Coca, and Dee Tiller to advance to the final match.
