Shawn Buchanan Eliminated in 2nd Place ($812,941)

Shawn Buchanan, 2nd place

Dan Kelly opened for 200,000 from the button, Shawn Buchanan raised to 650,000, and Kelly four-bet to 1,425,000. After asking how much Kelly had behind, Buchanan moved all-in and Kelly made the call. Kelly had Buchanan covered.

Buchanan {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Kelly {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The entire audience was on their feet as the flop came down {6-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, Buchanan's jacks still leading. The {5-Hearts} on the turn brought some outs to a chop, but that was not how this hand would end.

The dealer burned and turned the {A-Diamonds} and hundreds of jaws dropped to the floor as the room erupted. Buchanan was eliminated and the WSOP crowned their newest 21-year-old bracelet winner, Dan Kelly!

Although he lost out on the bracelet, Shawn Buchanan made his largest-ever career cash in this event, earning $812,941.
