John Gottlieb - 2nd Place

Steve Jelinek opened the pot with a 300,000-chip raise and John Gottlieb moved all in. Jelinek called. Although this is a pot-limit event, the rules were once again somewhat tossed out the window as this is how the action occurred.

Showdown
Jelinek: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Gottlieb: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

The board ran out {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and gave Gottlieb a second-best hand and second place in this tournament for $151,884. He had just 135,000 chips less than Jelinek at the final countdown of the stacks.
