Andreas Torbergsen Eliminated in 2nd Place ($164,553)

zedmaster84 • Level 32: 120,000-240,000, 0 ante

Andreas Torbergsen raised the pot on the button and Simon Lofberg three-bet the pot, which Torbergsen called with fewer than one million behind. On the {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop, Lofberg moved all-in and Torbergsen called it off.

Andreas Torbergsen: {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Simon Lofberg: {k-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

Torbergsen had an open-ender, gutshot and flushdraw while Lofberg had a gutshot to the higher straight and backdoor clubs. The {2-Spades} turn paired the board and the {4-Spades} river kept king-jack high in the lead. Torbergsen had to settle for second place which comes with a sweet payday of $164,552.93.
