Mike Sowers Eliminated in 2nd Place ($278,518)

• Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Mike Sowers - 2nd Place

Hand #161: Justin Bonomo made it 80,000 and Mike Sowers made the call.

They saw a flop of {4-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

Sowers checked and when Bonomo bet 110,000, Sowers moved all in. Bonomo quickly called.

Bonomo: {10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}.

Sowers: {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

A flopped flush for Bonomo, but a draw to a higher flush for Sowers who had managed a few improbable double ups so far this match.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and the river was the {8-Spades}. Not this time, and the miraculous return from almost nothing was not going to happen.
