Kevin Boudreau Eliminated in 2nd Place ($313,792)

Kevin Boudreau - 2nd place

Chance Kornuth opened for 200,000 from the button and Kevin Boudreau made it 600,000 from the big blind. Kornuth flat-called. They saw a flop.

Flop: {2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Boudreau bet pot.

"OK, let's get it in," said Kornuth. They turned the cards over. Boudreau was ahead.

Kornuth: {6-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Boudreau: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{4-Spades}{a-Spades}

Turn: {8-Spades}

The roar from the Kornuth rail could have burst a blogger's eardrum as Kornuth made trip eights.

River: {3-Clubs}

Boudreau fell away from the table into the consoling arms of his rail, while the Kornuth rail continued to cheer and Kornuth himself made a phone call.

"Hi dad, I won," he told his father on the other end of the phone. "Bracelet, baby!"

Says it all.
