Jim Monsini came into the heads up battle for the Bar Poker Open National Championship severely short stacked and he managed a double up, to get close to the 2,500,000 chip mark, but was still in the “danger zone” with less than 20 big blinds.

Monsini wouldn’t last much longer, as he was knocked out in 2nd place just a few hands after his double.

In a limped pot, both players saw the flop of {4h}{10s}{7c} and Monsini would open shove and get snap called by Chua.

Chua would turn over {10c}{2c} for top pair and a backdoor flush draw, while Monsini held {8c}{9c} for an open ended straight draw.

Neither draws would get there, as the turn and river bricked out and Chua would be crowned the champion of the BPO National Championship.

Jim Monsini, who made his second Final Table of the series, is eliminated in 2nd place for just under $6,000.
