Diego Ventura - 2nd place

Hand #141: Kevin Schulz raised to 350,000 with {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} from the button and Diego Ventura three-bet to 1,100,000 with {A-Spades}{8-Spades} and Schulz folded.

Hand #142: Schulz received a walk.

Hand #143: Schulz completed from the button with {K-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and Ventura checked his option with {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. The flop came {Q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and Ventura check-called a 365,000 bet from Schulz.

The turn was the {K-Clubs} and Ventura checked to Schulz who bet 775,000. Ventura called. The river was the {6-Clubs} and Ventura checked to Schulz who made it 900,000 to go. Ventura moved all in for 3,105,000 total.

Schulz took two sips of his water and asked the dealer how much more it was. He spent another minute before quietly announcing a call. Ventura stood, knowing his four was probably no good and those fears were confirmed when Schulz tabled his hand. Schulz's rail mobbed him after making the great call that resulted in him becoming the winner of the 2015 PCA Main Event. Diego Ventura was eliminated in second place, a great finish for the young Peruvian.
