Greg Jensen is quite the successful hedge fund CEO, and it was a surprising, and incredibly kind gesture, when he informed everyone that he was donating all of his winnings to the victims of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Jensen's generosity will see $286,200 donated, the prize he earned for finishing in sixth place.
His demise came after Nick Schulman opened for 80,000 on the button and Jensen shoved all in for 710,000 from the small blind. The big got out of the way and Schulman snap-called.
It was a bad spot for Jensen, and he had just a 29% of keeping his tournament hopes alive. Unfortunately for him, that percentage only went down as the board ran out . With that, the amateur who played the $100K on a whim was eliminated from the tournament.
