Brown's trip 6s gets him his 9th bounty of the tournament and the $67,358 pay day.

"I was up and down and all over the place," says Brown, who picks up the largest tournament cash of his professional career.

Brown says he's getting a ride back to Ontario, Canada to play in another tournament before making the 8 hour return trip Monday to play in Day 1B of the WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event.
