Event 51: $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty $250,000 Guarantee
Total Entrants: 234
Players Remaining: 8
Coming into the final table with only six big blinds, Mark Manesh had few other options other than to get his money in and hope for a double. Manesh had the chance to triple up but ended up felted and the first player eliminated from the bounty final table.
Anthony Maio opened under the gun to 17,000 and Armand Muratoglu called in the cutoff. Manesh moved all-in for 40,000 total from the big blind and both of his opponents called. Maio and Muratoglu checked down the K♠8♥3♠10♥4♠ board leaving Manesh to turn over Q♦J♠. Maio had him out-kicked with A♦J♦ and Muratoglu was playing ace-high as well A♥2♥.
Maio earned the bounty and his stack is near 500,000 as a result. Manesh takes home $4,135.
