Matt Kirby - Second Place

Matt Kirby opened for 120,000, and Matthew Anderson defended. On the {k-Spades}{9-Spades}{k-Clubs} flop, Anderson checked and Kirby bet 135,000. Anderson woke up with a raise to 400,000, and Kirby thought briefly before pushing all in for about 2.4 million. Anderson announced a call shortly after getting a count.

Anderson: {k-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Kirby: {6-Spades}{4-Spades}

Kirby had pushed with his flush draw and run into the trips of Anderson. The dealer burned and turned the {k-Diamonds}, giving Anderson quads and a lock on the tournament. A meaningless {8-Clubs} completed the board.
