L.J. Klein Eliminated in 2nd Place ($195,147)

L.J. Klein - 2nd place

Miguel Proulx and L.J. Klein had battled for about 45 minutes, with Proulx holding a slim advantage over Klein when the final hand took place.

Klein opened with a raise to 125,000 from the button, and Proulx called. The flop came monotone -- {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{J-Spades}. Proulx checked, Klein bet 75,000, and Proulx took about a half-minute before making the call.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds}. This time Proulx bet out 200,000, and it was Klein's turn to think about it. He, too, took about a half-minute to make his decision, then made the call.

The river was the {K-Hearts}, and Proulx quickly checked. Klein studied for just a moment, then said he was all-in. Proulx called instantly, turning over {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} for the unbeatable nut flush. Klein's losing hand was rapidly scooped, but it appeared he had {J-}{10-}{8-}{4-} for two pair.

Klein finishes as runner-up, and Miguel Proulx is our winner!
