A disapointed Andre Lomans settles for second place after building an 8-1 chip lead. On the final hand, Lomans’ pairs of 9s, while holding Ts9s, don’t improve against Brett Streicher’s KhQs for a flopped pair of Kings.

“I thought I was the best player at the final table until heads up” says Streicher who earns $44,187 as runner-up. “I made a lot of mistakes and saw them happening, I just couldn’t slow myself down.”

Lomans is a student studying electrical engineering at the University of Central Florida. This is just his third recorded live tournament cash and by far his biggest payday.
