Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Cada Crushed

[user169806] • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

The 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Cada has bowed out of the tournament after losing a coinflip that lost him all of his chips.

Cada's {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} was racing against {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}, a race that didn't go Cada's way. The {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} board kept the queens in front and Cada said his goodbyes before heading out into the warm Las Vegas night.

Jacobson and Hawkins Tangle

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Martin Jacobson raised to 1,400 from under the gun and Maurice Hawkins three-bet to 3,600 from late position. Jacobson called, the flop came {k-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{6-Spades} and both players checked. The turn was the {6-Hearts} and Jacobson bet 4,800 and Hawkins called.

The river was the {4-Spades} and Jacobson again led, this time for 12,200. Hawkins thought for a while, talking to Jacobson the whole time, but eventually folded {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} face up.
