Event 44: $600 No-Limit Hold’em $400,000 Guarantee
Total Entrants: 1,625
Players Remaining: 9
There were a few players that started the Event 44 final table under 1,000,000 and Julie Le was one of those finalists. With the blinds up, Le and her fellow short stacks would have to make a move eventually and Le’s timing worked out in her favor.
Le shoved for 900,000 under the gun and Stephen Song called in the hijack. It was a perfect scenario for Le as her A♣K♥ dominated the A♦Q♥ of Song. The A♠8♣5♥8♥9♣ run out kept her ahead to double up. Song still maintains his chip lead with 5,800,000. Robert Ervin is the new short stack with under nine big blinds.
