Evan McNiff - 2nd Place

Hand #331: Evan McNiff raised to 320,000 from the button and Jordan Morgan pushed all in. It was a sequence we had seen many times before in this tournament, but this time McNiff made the call to put his tournament life on the line. The two players flipped over their cards and revealed what is well-known in the poker world as a "classic race."

McNiff: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}
Morgan: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Either way this hand went, it was going to be a game changer. Either McNiff was going to be eliminated or Morgan was going to be left short.

The board ran out {j-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and McNiff saw his bracelet hopes slip away. Morgan's sixes held to give him the victory, and McNiff was eliminated in second place for a prize of $295,727.
