Leonid "Mikleler" Bilokur Eliminated in 2nd Place ($112,728)

Leonid "Mikleler" Bilokur was on fumes earlier in the final table, down to barely two big blinds. He got a 4x chip up in one hand, then another few doubles shortly after, to take the chip lead. It wasn't quite the worst-to-first fairly tale in the end, however, after getting heads-up against Renan Bruschi. In the final hand, Bilokur raised to 1.8 million and got the call.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{j-Spades} and Bruschi check-called for 1,837,500. Bruschi fired about 4 million on the {7-Hearts} turn, and Bilokur called to see {9-Diamonds} on river. Bruschi bet 11,869,500, enough to put Bilokur all-in, and the Russian called.

Leonid "Mikleler" Bilokur: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}
Renan Bruschi: {10-Spades}{3-Spades}

Bilokur had the best pre-flop hand, but by the time the {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} board was out, Bruschi hit a straight for the win. Bilokur won $112,728 for second.
