Norman McKeldin Eliminated in 2nd Place ($126,723)

Josh_Cahlik • Level 35: 70,000-140,000, 20,000 ante

On the first hand of heads up play Norman McKeldin held the button.

We're unsure of the prelfop action but the flop came {4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Ryan Stevenson checked over to McKeldin. McKeldin quickly announced that he was all in for 4.545 million.

"Why so much?" asked Stevenson.

He leaned back in his chair. "Alright, I call."

Stevenson showed {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} and was ahead with a pair of tens again McKeldin's {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} for two overs and a flush draw.

"Hold one time!" yelled Stevenson.

It seemed that he would not hold, as the {K-Clubs} fell on the turn giving McKeldin a pair of kings and the lead. Stevenson would need to re-suck on the river and he did exactly that as the {7-Hearts} drilled the felt, securing his victory of the 2013 WSOPC Harrah's Tunica Main Event.

McKeldin, on the other hand, will take home $126,723 for his runner-up finish.
