Dan Heimiller Eliminated in 2nd Place ($146,505)

Dan Heimiller - 2nd Place
Dan Heimiller - 2nd Place

Mike Chow checked a {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop, and Dan Heimiller bet. Chow called, and he check-called again after the {q-Clubs} on the turn prevented a low and completed a flush draw. The river produced the {k-Hearts}, and Chow checked one more time. With his hands back to shaking, Heimiller stuck in another bet. Chow called, and Heimiller clearly wasn't happy about it. He showed {a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for just a pair of nines. Chow turned up {j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for a king-high straight. His rail went nuts screaming and cheering when the dealer pushed almost all of the chips in front of Heimiller to Chow.

Heimiller was left with 125,000 after the hand. He was in the small blind next and called all in with his last 25,000 chip. No more delaying the inevitable.

Showdown

Heimiller: {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

Chow: {q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}

To the screams of the rail, the board ran out {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}. Chow took the whole pot with a king-high straight. Heimiller came up short of a second bracelet, but at least he goes home with $146,505 for his efforts.
