Event 22: 2nd Place - Cain

$400 + $50 No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

George Cain - (Kings Park, NY)

George double up once during heads-up play against Tony Ruberto (Boston, MA) then lost a coin-flip for all his chips.

Final hand of the tournament: George A-K vs. Tony 99.  All the action got in pre-flop.

Board: 3-8-7-4-Q.

George thought he was out the door in spots 18 or 19 but kept moving up pay levels protecting and working his short stack.  At the final table he had KK three times and doubled three times thru Tony Antonious.

"I actually had KK 6 times today and A-K a bunch" said the man we nicknamed King George (from King's Park).  Ironically the only time he lost with A-K all day was during the last hand.

No complaints from Advertising Sales Associate George Cain who chipped up all day and takes home an impressive $14,789 for his 2nd Place finish.
