Kyle Kloeckner - 2nd Place
Omaha -

Max Pescatori raised from the button to 72,000. Kyle Kloeckner made the call from the small blind. The flop came down all red, {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {3-Hearts}. Kloeckner checked over to Pescatori, who made a bet of 110,000. Kloeckner thought and then made the call.

The turn was the {2-Hearts} and Klockner checked one more time to Pescatori. Max asked the dealer to verify the pot size and then announced he would bet the pot, 364,000. Kloeckner went into the tank for several minutes. He mentioned, "I think you know what I have." and gave a grim look on his face.

After thinking for another couple minutes, Kloecker announced he was all in. Pescatori made the call and the hands were revealed.

Pescatori: {K-?} {J-?} {8-?} {7-?}
Kloeckner: {J-?} {10-?} {10-?} {3-?}

The river came off the {2-Diamonds} and Pescatori jumped from his chair and raised his good arm in the air for victory. Italian words were screamed from the crowd as Pescatori ran over to high five his buddies that railed him for the entire final table.

Kloeckner gave a strong performance and didn't give up when faced with adversity at this final table. He earned $152,410 for his second place finish.
