David Vamplew - 2nd Place

On the seventh hand of heads-up play, and the 124th hand of the final table, David Vamplew raised to 100,000 on the button. Trevor Pope moved all in for effectively 940,000, and Vamplew called.

Vamplew: {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Pope: {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

Vamplew was racing for his tournament life, Pope for a bracelet, and the flop fell {j-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. Vamplew picked up three more outs to survive, as any jack would counterfeit Pope's small pair.

The turn was the {7-Clubs}, giving Vamplew another three outs, but even with 12 outs, it wasn't enough. The {4-Clubs} bricked on the river, and it was all over.

Vamplew will receive $342,450 for his runner-up finish.
