Phil Ivey - 2nd place

Andy Frankenberger raised to 300,000 and Phil Ivey made the call. The flop was {A-Spades} {5-Diamonds} {4-Hearts}, Ivey checked, Frankenberger bet 130,000, Ivey raised pot and Frankenberger called faster than a bolt of lightning strikes the earth. This was going to be the bracelet defining pot everyone is waiting for and this place is packed to the rafters.

Ivey turned over {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} for the open ended straight draw and Frankenberger turned over {A-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} for top pair. Andy Frankenberger was about to win his second World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in consecutive years.

Turn: {5-Spades}

One more card to fade and Frankenberger was going to be our champion.

River: {5-Clubs}

That's it! Frankenberger has not only won his second WSOP bracelet and $445,899, he has done so by beating the greatest poker player alive today. Frankenberger has his critics but what are they saying now? What a feat for Frankenberger and commiserations to Ivey who played like a champion throughout. He leaves with $275,559.
