Joe McKeehen - 2nd place

Hand #174: Hugo Pingray raised to 4 million from the button and Joseph McKeehen pushed all in for 45.85 million with Pingray instantly making the call to put McKeehen at risk.

McKeehen: {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Pingray: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

With McKeehen trailing in both chip count and hand strength, the dealer fanned a {A-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop to put Pingray squarely in the lead as his boisterous rail launched into a bevy of cheers.

McKeehen would now need a runner-runner combination of straight cards, trips or two-pair, but when the {9-Spades} landed on the turn, he would be drawing dead as Pingray ran to his cheering rail to celebrate.

The meaningless {9-Diamonds} landed on the river and McKeehen would take 2nd place for a $820,863 payday as Pingray would be crowned the Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack Champion!
