Neil Willerson had the button. He completed Vladimir Mefodichev checked. The flop came {4-Hearts}{3-Spades}{8-Spades} and Mefodichev checked. Willerson bet 300,000 and Mefodichev raised to 800,000.

Willerson announced that he was all in and Mefodichev called for his tournament life.

Willerson: {J-Spades}{6-Spades}
Mefodichev: {K-Spades}{5-Spades}

Both players had flush draws but Mefodichev was ahead with his king-high. The turn was the {6-Clubs}, pairing Willerson, however, and he jumped into the lead. Mefodichev needed a king or a spade on the river to clinch a double up. The {10-Hearts} did not help him and he was forced to settle for a second place finish and a payday of $456,217.
