Barry Shulman Eliminated in 2nd Place ($222,295)

MartianNews • Level 37: 300,000-600,000, 600,000 ante

Hand #249: Michael Blake opened to 1.3 million from the button and Barry Shulman defended. The dealer fanned out {q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades} on the flop and Shulman checked to Blake who pushed in 1.5 million.

Shulman check-raised to 3 million and Blake called to see the {5-Hearts} turn card. Shulman instantly moved all in for around 14.5 million and Blake snap-called.

Shulman tabled {j-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for both a flush and straight draw. Blake tabled {q-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for two pair on the flop and the crowd started to rumble as the dealer burned a card.

Shulman needed to hit or his day would be done and the dealer turned over an {8-Spades}, missing Shulman as he was eliminated to the two pair of Blake for a respectable $222,295.

Congratulations to Michael Blake on taking down Event #39: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold'em for an immense $359,863 and a new WSOP bracelet.

A recap of the tournament will be posted shortly, along with final table results.
