Final table, five handed, with the blinds at 30,000 and 60,000 and a 10,000 ante, Lichtenberger raised to 120,000 from under the gun, Raghavan reraised to 305,000 from the cutoff seat, Lichtenberger went all-in, Raghavan called.


Lichtenberger once again put himself in a great position to score a WPT title, making the final table of the Five Diamond in back to back years. However he lost two huge coinflips to Raghavan in short order, and he was eliminated shortly after this hand when Raghavan’s Q-4 bested Lichtenberger’s A-9 in an all-in preflop scenario. Sometimes certain players just hold over you. Lichtenberger had finished 4th in this tournament in 2011, this year he finished in 5th for $234,197. The online star has successfully transitioned to brick and mortar play with $2.8 million in live winnings but a WSOP bracelet and WPT title still elude him. Lichtenberger is clearly near the top of the list of the best players who lack either title. Lichtenberger did score a WSOP ring in a 2010 circuit event and it seems to be only a matter of time before he will gain more hardware.
