Jacob Neff (Philadelphia, PA)
Jacob Neff trailed Aaron Massey 4 to 1 in chips when heads up began, but never got the double-up he needed.
On the final hand Neff missed a flush draw after getting all in on the flop and settled for second place.
"I'm very pleased considering the talent in the field," says Neff. "Even though I began the day second in chips, that didn't mean a thing because of all the good players."
Neff is an occasional poker player and a full time therapist who had the support of his fiancee Jessica on the rail.
