Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Cohen Cruises With Pocket Jacks

• Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

After risking her remaining stack of 70,000 chips, Samantha Cohen was called by Jackson Su and the two players showed down their hands.

Cohen: {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Su: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}

We were off to the races in this classic coinflip confrontation.

The flop came {3-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} and Cohen's fishhooks were good so far.

The {4-Diamonds} on the turn provided Cohen some discomfort, as Su could now catch an ace or a king to pair up, any deuce to make a wheel straight, or any six for a chopped pot.

River: {8-Clubs}

Su missed all of his outs and Cohen doubled through, growing her stack to 140,000 chips in the process.
