Knock-Outs Flying; Places 12th-15th: $6856

  • Big Stax XXVI 1500 7:55 PM
  • Level 22 (10000/20000/20000)
  • Players Remaining: 11

Less than halfway through level 22 back from break, and we have already lost 6 players.  Juno Kim in 15th to Filippos Stavrakis, and then both John Cosgrove Jr, and Guoliang Chen to Jonathan Borenstein. Borenstein’s luck came to a halt shortly after when he opened to 45k in the hijack and was 3bet by David DeNoon in the BB to 120k, Borenstein calls.

Flop: A♦Q♠10♥ DeNoon leads out for 120k and Borenstein calls.

Turn: 8♦ DeNoon bets 200k and Borenstein goes all in for his remaining roughly 1.2mil on top, and DeNoon calls showing his Q♣Q for a set of Q’s vs Borenstein’s A♣10♠ (2pair) with just 2 outs in the deck to help him, Borenstein is eliminated in 12th with the 5♠ on the river.
