Jason Koon Eliminated in 2nd Place ($128,660)

2nd place finisher Jason Koon

It was painful, but at least it was quick for Jason Koon.

The last hand came about when the two players saw a {7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop. Force tried to force Koon off his hand but he called all-in.

Koon: {5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for two-pair.
Force: {j-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a pair of eights.

Force needed running cards to win and when the turn came {10-Clubs} he commented, "Wow, that was a good card for me!"

He clenched his hands together, almost looking like he was praying as the river was revealed as {q-Clubs} to make his flush! It gave him all the chips and the coveted WSOP bracelet.

Congratulation to Jason Koon on getting oh so close to his first bracelet. He'll be back, that's for sure.
