Ville Wahlbeck Eliminated in 2nd Place ($172,864)

Ville Wahlbeck - 2nd Place
Ville Wahlbeck - 2nd Place
What an end to this tournament! Nick Schulman opened from the button for the standard 75,000 chips, then called a reraise from Ville Wahlbeck to 250,000. On the draw, both players took one card.

With the draw completed, Wahlbeck had first action. He moved all in and was double-fist-pump-snap-called by Schulman, who turned over Number One (7-5-4-3-2)! It was overkill, as a deflated Wahlbeck opened a stone bluff, 9-9-8-5-2.

Wahlbeck's quest for his second bracelet of the 2009 WSOP comes up just a bit short. He will earn $172,864 for second place.
