WSOP Tournament of Champions

Howard Lederer Eliminated in 2nd Place ($250,000)

Howard Lederer - 2nd Place

Howard Lederer put up a good fight after Huck Seed doubled through him, but he could only last so long. Lederer moved all in on the button for a total of 138,000. Seed shrugged and knew the math said he had to call. The audience got to its feet for the final showdown.

Lederer: {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Seed: {a-Spades}{2-Spades}

The {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop didn't change much, but as has happened over and over again this tournament, the plot thickened on the turn. The {9-Spades} gave Seed a flush draw, but Lederer picked up an open-ended straight draw. Neither draw got there with the {a-Hearts} on the river, and Seed took the pot with top pair to knock out Lederer in second place.
