Rockowitz Temporarily Toasted

HillKerby • Level 12: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante
Jesse Rockowitz

Jesse Rockowitz was standing up from his seat and was in the process of being eliminated from the tournament as the runout finished and his hand was mucked. Three spades were on board and Justin Thurlow's winning hand of {q-Spades}{9-Spades} was still tabled for a moment as the pot was shipped his way before the cards were scooped up.

According to Thurlow after the hand, he opened on the button and Rockowitz committed the last of his chips from the big blind with {8-}{6-}. Thurlow's flush was best when all was said and done and he delivered the final blow to Rockowitz after he stuck around with a short stack for nearly two hours before being eliminated from the tournament. However, he wasted no time using his reentry and has found a new seat and a fresh starting stack of 25,000.
