$600 Grand Poker Series Championship No-Limit Hold'em

Ruth Graham Eliminated in 17th Place ($4,720)

Ruth Graham

Ruth Graham jammed in early position for about 250,000 and Jason Bartholomew called from middle position.

Ruth Graham: {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Jason Bartholomew: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Bartholomew flopped trips on the {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{j-Clubs} flop, but Graham made a straight on the {9-Clubs} turn. The tides changed once again on the {a-Hearts} river which gave Bartholomew a boat and eliminated Graham.

Others at the table said Graham had navigated through the tournament with skill and that "she would not die", and would probably make the final table had she stayed alive in the hand.
