Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Blenkarn Busto


Sadly, there will be no more notes from Jeff "The Messenger" Blenkarn after he just recalled his elimination from the 2011 WSOP Main Event with us at media row, which happened over the space of two hands.

Earlier, Freddy Deeb raised all-in for 103,000 from under the gun with {A-}{K-} before Blenkarn shoved over the top with {10-}{10-} before the others got out of the way. Despite staying ahead on the flop and the turn, Blenkarn lost the flip for Deeb's tournament life when the {A-Clubs} spiked on the river.

Down to 100,000, Blenkarn shipped it in the very next hand with {Q-}{J-} off-suit, but another opponent woke up with {A-}{A-}. The board ran out king-high and with that, "The Messenger" has ridden off into the sunset.
