Event 4: 2nd Place - Pires

$500 + $60 + $200 Bounty NL (Re-Entry)

Jedial Pires (Stone Harbor, NJ via Brazil) 

After a pivotal missed flush draw, Jedial Pires finishes runner-up to Matt Iles.

On the final hand, Pires is down to 300k and has K Q♠ against A J. Iles flops an ace to secure the win and the trophy.

"It's okay," says Pires who owns a construction business and plays poker part time.  "He got a couple of good hands at the end."

When Pires missed the flush draw, Iles won the hand with pocket queens for a one million chip pot and control of heads up play.

In addition to winning nearly $20,000 as runner-up, Pires picked up 17 bounties for an additional $3,400.

"I love it," says Pires when asked about the bounty format and is looking to continue his success into the Borgata Fall Poker Open Championship event.
