Tom Franklin Eliminated in 2nd Place ($76,943)

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante
Tom Franklin

Todd Bui chipped away at Tom Franklin once we returned from the break and Franklin would end up getting the last of his chips in after the first draw. Franklin and Bui both drew one and Bui stood pat. Franklin drew one and Bui turned over his hand:

{2-}{4-}{5-}{8-}{10-}

Franklin had {3-}{5-}{6-}{8-} and would win with any card nine or lower that did not pair him up. He squeezed his cards one at a time and the fifth card was lower than a nine but unfortunately for him it paired him as it was a {5-}.

Franklin comes up short in his quest for a 2nd bracelet but will take home a nice consolation prize of $76,943.
