Alex Brenes Eliminated in 2nd Place ($127,625)

Alex Brenes - 2nd Place
On the very next hand, Alex Brenes puts the last of his 40,000 chips all in holding {A-Hearts} {10-Clubs}. With plenty of chips, Jose Miguel Espinar makes the call, tabling {K-Clubs} {3-Clubs}.

Again, a massive crowd surrounds the table, eagerly awaiting the outcome of what could be the final hand.

The flop is about as good as it gets for Espinar. It comes {K-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {9-Clubs}, giving him top pair and a flush draw to boot. Brenes realizes that his hopes are vanishing with just two cards left to find salvation.

The turn is the {4-Spades}, no help to Alex.

Down to his last card, Brenes needs to find one of the non-club aces to stay alive. Unfortunately for him, the {9-Spades} peels off, winning the hand and the championship for Jose Miguel Espinar.

Alex Brenes put on quite a show this weekend, and in the LAPT overall. His two final table appearances are certainly worthy of high praise. He was unable to capture a title, but he will take home $127,625 tonight.
