Kristopher Tong Eliminated in 2nd Place ($134,017)

tayke2 • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Kristopher Tong- Runner Up


Tong: {9-Spades}{k-Diamonds} / {9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Gorodinsky: {j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / {q-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Kristopher Tong was down to just three big bets when the two got the money in on fourth street. The dealer sent the cards out like rapid fire, and when Gorodinsky caught the straight on sixth street, Tong was drawing dead. Neither player revealed their final down card.

Tong held the chip lead when we started heads up, but he will have to simply wonder what could have been, as he bows out in 2nd place.
