Josh Arieh Eliminated in 2nd Place ($391,575)

• Level 28: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Josh Arieh - 2nd Place

Hand #142: Brian Yoon raised to 100,000 on the button and Josh Arieh folded.

Hand #143: In what would be the final hand of the tournament, Arieh opened for 100,000 from the button and Yoon called from the big blind, which brought about a flop of {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Yoon checked, Arieh bet 75,000, and Yoon check-raised to 240,000. Arieh called to see the {A-Clubs} and Yoon bet 350,000. Arieh took a few moments before raising all in for 1.63 million and Yoon snap-called.

Yoon: {8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Arieh: {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Arieh put it in with a pair of aces and the ace-high flush redraw, and he needed to hit the latter as Yoon had flopped a flush. Both rails were on their feet to watch the dealer burn and put out the {6-Clubs}.

Arieh missed and was eliminated in second place. While Arieh missed out on his third bracelet, he will take home a $391,575 consolation prize.
