Sam Cohen Eliminated in 9th Place ($38,244)

[user153638] • Level 26: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Sam Cohen - 9th Place

Hand #5: Matt Salsberg opened for 65,000 from the hijack, Thad McNulty called from the big blind, and the flop came down {8-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. McNulty checked, Salsberg bet 75,000, and McNulty called to see the {4-Spades} on the turn. McNulty check-called another bet, this time 100,000, and the {Q-Spades} completed the board on the river. McNulty opted to lead out for 200,000 and Salsberg released his hand.

Hand #6: Action folded to Sam Cohen on the button and she moved all in for 275,000. The blinds folded and Cohen won the pot.

Hand #7: Justin Oliver opened for 65,000 from the hijack only to have Sam Cohen three-bet all in for 360,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and then Oliver thought long and hard before making the call.

Oliver: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Cohen: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

It was a race situation, but Cohen was the one that needed to improve. She didn't do it on the {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop, and the {a-Diamonds} turn was equally as useless. Cohen needed either a king or queen on the river to stay alive, but it wasn't in the cards as the {4-Spades} blanked.
