Alex Kravchenko - 2nd Place

Alex Kravchenko completed with {k-Spades}, and Eric Buchman called with {8-Diamonds}. Buchman raised when he picked up {10-Diamonds}, only to see Kravchenko raise it right back with the {7-Clubs}. Kravchenko then bet fifth and sixth, but Buchman fired a raise then. Kravchenko called.

Kravchenko: {x-}{x-}/{k-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Buchman: {x-}{x-}/{8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Buchman bet the river, and Kravchenko called. Buchman showed {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for a straight to the ten, crippling Kravchenko down to 34,000.

A couple of hands later, Kravchenko was all in on fourth.

Kravchenko: {8-Spades}{7-Clubs}/{6-Hearts}{7-Spades}
Buchman: {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}/{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}

Buchman had tens, while Kravchenko had sevens and a three-straight. Fifth street for Buchman was the {10-Hearts}, giving him trips, while Kravchenko also caught good with the {5-Spades} for a straight draw. Buchman received the {6-Clubs} to fill up on sixth though, ending the tournament.
