Daniel Negreanu - 2nd Place

Hand #114: Daniel Negreanu called on the button and Daniel Colman checked his option. The flop came down {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {A-Diamonds} hit the turn and two more checks allowed the board to complete with the {J-Hearts}. Negreanu showed {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Colman tabled {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, meaning this hand would be a chop.

Hand #115: Colman opened to 3.2 million from the button and Negreanu folded his big blind.

Hand #116: Negreanu called from the button and Colman checked. The flop came down {9-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Colman checked. Negreanu fired 2.5 million and Colman stuck around.

The turn was the {K-Spades} and both players checked. The {Q-Clubs} completed the board and both players checked. Negreanu showed {J-Spades}{2-Spades} and Colman tabled {J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}. The players chopped the pot.

Hand #117: Colman opened to 3.2 million and Negreanu folded his big blind.

Hand #118: Negreanu limped the button and Colman made it four million to go. Negreanu shipped all-in over the top for 20.85 million and Colman instantly called.

Negreanu: {A-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Colman: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came down in dramatic fashion with {J-Spades}{A-Hearts}{4-Spades} hitting the felt and giving Negreanu two pair of aces and fours. Colman was not dead though, as he also hit the flop for an inside straight draw to Broadway. The dealer rapped the table and produced the turn card.

The {10-Spades}.

The ESPN stage erupted with cheers as Colman suddenly took the lead with a straight. Suddenly, it was Negreanu who was looking for help with just one card to come. Negreanu needed an ace or a four on the river to make a full house and stay alive. Unfortunately for "KidPoker", the {7-Spades} peeled off on the river and he was eliminated as the runner-up for $8,288,001 in prize money.
