Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Frankie Johnson Eliminated in 6th Place ($120,748)

Frankie Johnson - 6th place

Sebastien Comel opened with a minimum-raise to 100,000 from early position, then Frankie Johnson reraised to 500,000 from the cutoff. Dominik Nitsche checked his cards, then announced he was reraising over the top all in. The blinds and Comel quickly skedaddled, and Johnson didn't hesitate before calling.

Johnson: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Nitsche: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Pocket kings again for Nitsche! And a bad time for Johnson to pick up a big-but-not-quite-that-big pair. The flop came {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{J-Clubs}, then the turn brought the {K-Hearts} to give Nitsche a set and make the {2-Spades} just a bit of trivia.

The Nitsche express keeps rolling. He's still stacking, but it appears he certainly has more than half the chips in play now with five left.
