Patrik Antonius Eliminated in 2nd Place (A$1,200,000)

Patrik Antonius

In what would be the last hand of the tournament, Patrik Antonius open-shipped and Phil Ivey snap-called.



The room came alive as everyone was on their feet as Antonius was at risk. However, nothing is easy and faint gasp could be heard when the {3-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Spades} flop came down, giving Antonius a pair of threes and the lead. Just when it seemed the tournament was bound to go on even longer, the {Q-Clubs} spiked on the turn to give Ivey back the lead.

Antonius needed either a king or three on the river to stay alive, but it was not in the cards as the {8-Diamonds} appeared. Antonius was eliminated in second place for $1.2 million, while Ivey captured the $2 million first-place prize, in the same day he finished 12th in the Main Event for $100,000.
