Timothy Finne Eliminated in 2nd Place ($165,486)

Timothy Finne - 2nd place
Timothy Finne - 2nd place

Steven Loube began heads-up play with about a 3-to-1 chip advantage, and after a couple of small-pot hands, enjoyed about the same lead when Timothy Finne limped in from the button. Loube quickly raised the pot to 180,000, and Finne called.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{K-Spades}. Loube sat quietly for just a moment, then bet 360,000.

It was Finne's turn to sit in contemplation for several seconds before announcing he was reraising all in. Loube called right away.

Finne: {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Loube: {A-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Finne had a pair of kings and an open-ended straight draw, while Loube had a nut flush draw with backdoor low possibilities. "Heart!" yelled Loube's supporters, but the turn brought the {Q-Clubs} to give Finne two pair and take away any low.

The dealer then burned a card and turned over the river... the {9-Hearts}! "Yes!" shouted Loube at the sight of the card, who after exchanging hugs with his rail shook Finne's hand.

Finne finishes second, better than the three third-places he's earned at the WSOP before. A nice run, but one spot shy of the goal. Meanwhile, Steven Loube is 1-for-1... this is his very first WSOP tournament ever!
