Jason Koon Eliminated in 5th Place ($100,000)

Jason Koon

Jason Koon was left short-stacked after a couple of lost races to Bill Klein. He found a pot right after with big slick that moved him back up to 115,000.

The very next hand Jared Jaffee moved all in from the small blind and Koon called his remaining stack from the big blind without even looking at his cards, players turned over their hands.

Jared Jaffee: {10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Jason Koon: {8-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

The flop came down {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs} and Koon would need to suck out to stay alive. A {q-Hearts} on the turn did not help as Jaffee's tens were still ahead. The {k-Clubs} on the river changed nothing as Jaffee took down the pot, eliminating Koon from the tournament.
