Joe Cashen, Big Stax 300 Day 2

The details of Cashen’s bust-out hand are a bit scrambled in terms of bet sizes but the action went like this…

Cashen opened the button and Tom McMahon defended his big blind. The two players started with ~3M and ~3.2M respectively, very close stacks. The flop came KxJx9x with one diamond. McMahon check/called a flop bet from Cashen. The turn was the 7♦ bringing a flush draw to the board. McMahon checked again and this time Cashen shoved all-in and was snap called by McMahon.

McMahon QxTx vs Cashen K♦4♦

Cashen had turned a flush draw to go with his top pair while McMahon had flopped the nuts and was waiting in the weeds. The river was a brick and Cashen was sent to the rail. McMahon is now working with over 6M.

Joe Cashen is eliminated in 17th place for $5,116.
