Brendan Edmonds Eliminated in 2nd Place ($142,875)
We were expecting a long, arduous battle but it was all over just after 5.45am - Brendan Edmonds raised to 300,000 from the button, Matthew Ephraums reraised to 1 million straight, Edmonds announced he was all in and Ephraums snap-called.

Ephraums: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Edmonds: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Ephraums soared further ahead when the flop came down {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. Drawing thin to runners, the turn was red but not what Edmonds was looking for as it was in the {6-Hearts}.

It was all over before the river {7-Clubs} completed the board - Edmonds bows out in second place, confirming Matthew Ephraums as our second Aussie Millions Poker Championship winner in 2010!
