[user80015] • Level 30: 120,000-240,000, 40,000 ante
Jeffrey Gross - 2nd Place

From the button, Jeffrey Gross pushed out a stack of chips amounting to a raise of 500,000. Mark Radoja responded with an all in shove and Gross instantly announced a call, slammed down his cards and began celebrating after seeing what Radoja held.

Radoja: {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Gross: {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}

With Gross in the lead with his ace-high, both players' rail stood up and started cheering for an assortment of cards. With Gross' rail consisting of Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Laak, Matthew Waxman and many more, the {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop would send them sinking as Radoja had come from behind to take the lead.

Needing any ace, king or jack to take back the lead, Gross would see the {10-Clubs} land on the turn to send Radoja's rail into a screaming fit as Gross was left drawing dead for the win. The meaningless {A-Hearts} spiked on the river to send Gross to the rail in 2nd place for a $269,742 payday as Radoja's rail rushed the Thunder-Dome and surrounded Radoja in a fit of hugs and craziness before busting out their famous chant taken from the song My Sharona by The Knack.

Ooh my little pretty one, pretty one.
When you gonna give me some time, Mark Radoja?
Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run.
Gun it comin' off the line Mark Radoja!
