Event 20: 2nd Place - Morgenstern

$1,000 + 90 + 500 Purple Chip Bounty No Limit Hold'em

Tom Morgenstern (Crosswicks, NJ) 
$39,692

On the final hand ,the board shows 7 6♣ 8 2 6 and Morgenstern check-raises all in on the river for what's left of the 1.5 million he had to start the hand.

Michael Brown snap calls and shows trip 6s for the winner against Morgenstern's J 8 for a pair of 8s. Brown takes the title as Morgenstern settles for second place.

"I didn't do as well as my son," beams the runner-up while talking about Charles Morgenstern who won the PLO tournament (Event 9) for ~$15,000. "But the payday was alright."

Morgenstern is an orthodontist who updated Chuck with phone calls because his son couldn't be on the rail in person.
