Event 12: 2nd place - Blankenship

$260 + 40 Big Stack NL Hold'em ($100,000 Guarantee) 

James Blankenship (Circleville, OH) 

A bad bluff heads up leads to a runner up finish for James Blankenship.

On a board of J 10 5 3 5, Blankenship moves all in with 7 8 a missed straight draw, against Asher Conniff who had flopped two pair. Conniff doubles his last 3.5 million in what turns out to be a 10 million chip pot.

A few hands later, Conniff finishes the job to win the tournament.

"I'm disappointed," says Blankenship, an accountant from nearby Columbus, OH. "I was tired and made a few mistakes at the end."
