Final Day Action
The second day of Event #9: $300 Deepest Stack NLH had just 150 return of the 837 entries that were accumulated. It took just under two hours of play before the bubble popped, and unfortunately for Kastriot Gjelaj, he was the last person to not make the money. Gjelaj moved all in with ace-ten, only to run into the pocket kings of James Oconnor. Gjelaj failed to catch up, sending the pot to Oconnor who popped the bubble and the remaining 81 players were all now guaranteed a $528 payday.
As per usual the field quickly depleted upon reaching the money with many familiar faces hitting the wayside including Will Givens who ran up a stack late on the second flight but could not land a card against Gary Gelman when it counted the most and he was eliminated early into the money.
Once the tournament was down to the final three tables it was Kenny Nguyen who took over. Nguyen built his stack up to over a million and then struck gold with ace-queen against pocket queens, eliminating an opponent with a lucky runout. Only moments after, Michael Cohen moved all in with king-jack for 1.5 million from the hijack and Nguyen woke up with big slick in the big blind, sending Cohen out as he secured a massive stack that he brought to the final two tables.
Nguyen led the final 17 redraw and it was not long before the players started to fall. Dean Chimienti, Leonard Sande, and William Baxavaneos all took an exit instantly. William Mcallister, Gerard Carbery, and Tony Anitra all held on a little bit longer but still failed to see the final table.
The final ten took to their seats and it was Arie Praisman with the lead, after running over the final two tables. It would not take long until a first victim headed to the payout desk in Geoffrey Girgis who shoved his two blinds into the middle with three-two of diamonds. Nguyen called with his king-queen, turning two pair as Girgis took an exit in tenth place.
Jacob Edelman was another short stack who jammed from the small blind and Ory Hen hooked him up. Edelman tabled jack-ten and Hen turned over king-nine. Neither player hit anything and Hen took down the pot, eliminating Edelman. Nick Palma has a personality that everyone loves at the table and he also had a decent stack to start the final table. After a few small pots were lost he looked down at a pair of dimes and three-bet all in over the open of Nguyen who snap-called with ace-queen. The flop came down with an ace and the rest is history as Palma was eliminated in eight place.
The last person to take an exit before an adjusted payout was agreed upon was Yehuda Balin in seventh. Balin battled as well as anyone, prolonging his eventual demise to the maximum. He found a good spot to secure a double up with his four-two of hearts on a two heart flop with a wheel draw, but Nguyen had other plans. Nguyen tabled six-five for bottom pair, he managed to fade the turn and river, sending Balin out in seventh.
