Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Jamie Robbins Eliminated in 19th Place ($294,601)

Jamie Robbins - 19th Place

From under the gun, Jamie Robbins raised to 500,000 on the outer table. Action folded over to Jacob Balsiger on the button and he reraised to 1.2 million. Play folded through the blinds and back to Robbins. He called to take a flop.

The dealer rolled out the {9-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and Robbins checked. Balsiger checked behind to see the {10-Diamonds} come on the turn. Robbins moved all in for approximately 2.9 million and Balsiger made the call.

Robbins turned up the {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for a flush draw and straight draw. Balsiger held the {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for a set of nines.

Needing a queen or a diamond that didn't pair the board, Robbins' tournament life hung in the balance. After the dealer dealt the {3-Spades} on the river, Balsiger's hand held up and he sent Robbins out the door.

Robbins — who finished in 11th place in the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event for $896,730 — took home $294,601 for his 19th-place result here in 2012.

And with that, the field is down to just 18 players and a redraw will be made. PokerNews will have that for you shortly. The remaining competitors are now earning at least $369,026.
