Kyle Menne

In the seventh hand of Day 2, Kyle Menne moved all in from the button for 300,000. Garth Arnason made the call from the big blind.

We were in a classic race situation for the title. Arnason, with the chip lead, held the slight advantage going to the flop with {8-}{8-} against Menne's {K-}{Q-}.

The flop came {8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}, giving Arnason a set of eights and a huge lead in the hand and Menne needing running cards to make a straight to survive.

The turn was the {4-Clubs}, giving Arnason a lock on the hand. The river was the {K-Hearts}, making Arnason's win official.

Kyle Menne finished in second place collecting $14,309.
