Viacheslav Zhukov - 2nd place

No-Limit Hold'em

On the first hand of heads-up play, John Racener raised all in from the button. Viacheslav Zhukov called all in from the big blind for about 650,000 with {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, flipping with Racener's {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}.

The flop fell {J-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}, excellent for Racener's hand.

"He's got one out," Racener told his rail.

Those outs increased when the {5-Diamonds} turn paired the board, but the river was the {J-Clubs}, giving Racener jacks full of fives to win the pot and eliminate Zhukov in second place.
