Main Event

Jay Tolon Eliminated in Thirteenth Place (US $7,200)

Jay Tolon

Pre-flop, everybody folded to Jay Tolon in the hi-jack, who declared he was all-in for his stack of less than 80,000 in chips. Everybody got out of the way except for big blind Somyung Sim, who instantly called.

Jay: {k-Spades}{4-Spades}
Somyung: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Jay would need to catch some cards but nothing came for him on the flop of {7-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. It got worse on the turn when the {6-Hearts} came to give Somyung the set.

Needing a five and only a five to hit a straight and stay alive, Jay instead got a meaningless {9-Clubs}, sending him out of the tournament and leaving us with twelve more players in the main event.
