Gianluca Speranza - 2nd Place

From the button, Gianluca Speranza raised to 42,000. Andrew Hinrichsen reraised to 100,000 even from the big blind and Speranza called to see the flop.

The flop came down {K-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Hinrichsen fired a bet of 115,000. Speranza reached for his chips and slid out a tall tower to make the call.

The turn was the {6-Clubs} and Hinrichsen stayed on the gas. He upped his bet a bit and fired 200,000. With two tall towers this time, Speranza slid out the call.

The river completed the board with the {3-Spades} and Hinrichsen paused before announcing that he was all in. Speranza snap-called. Immediately, Hinrichsen tabled the {A-Spades}{K-Spades} for kings and threes with top kicker. Speranza held a weaker kicker with the {K-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Thanks to his double up earlier, Hinrichsen had the chip lead and eliminated Speranza in second place to earn the victory and his first-ever World Series of Poker gold bracelet!
