Event #8: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Max Steinberg Eliminated in 2nd Place ($352,916)

Max Steinberg - 2nd Place

Pascal LeFrancois limped and Max Steinberg checked his option.

The flop came down {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{k-Hearts}.

Steinberg bet 140,000 and LeFrancois made the call.

The turn brought the {5-Hearts}.

Steinberg bet 360,000 and LeFrancois made the call.

The {10-Diamonds} fell on the river and Steinberg moved all in. LeFrancois asked for a count, thought for a second, and made the call.

When he saw the {4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} of Steinberg and knew his {j-Spades}{6-Clubs} was good, he jumped out of his seat and ran over to his railbirds who were screaming and jumping up and down. Steinberg may not have gotten the bracelet but $352,916 isn't a bad consolation prize.
