Event 35: $600 No-Limit Hold’em SuperStack $70,000 Guarantee
Blinds: 8,000-16,000 w/2,000 ante
Players Remaining: 9
Starting the final table with less than six big blinds, Stephen Russo needed to catch a few breaks to jump back into contention. The opposite occurred for Russo as bad luck against Kelly Slay sent him to the rail as the first player eliminated.
Russo moved all-in for 55,000 from early position and Slay called from the big blind. Russo was ahead with A♠K♥ against the K♦J♠ of Slay but a jack on the flop put Slay into the lead. Russo commented on the “sickness” of the situation as the rest of the board bricked to certify his elimination.
Slay increases her chip lead and is playing 620,000.
