Event #47: $111,111 One Drop High Rollers No-Limit Hold'em

Jason Koon Eliminated in 21st Place ($173,723)

Chad_Holloway • Level 23: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante
Jason Koon - 20th Place

Jason Koon moved all in for roughly 1.1 million only to have Bill Perkins move all in over the top. The rest of the field folded and Koon discovered the bad news.

Koon: {a-Diamonds}{J-}
Perkins: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Per usual, Perkins shouted his favorite saying, "Leeeeeeeroyyyyy Jenkins." The {6-Clubs}{9-Spades}{8-Spades} flop was dry as can be for Koon, who was left looking for a jack. The {a-Spades} turn paired both players, but Perkins' kicker had him well out in front. Koon needed a jack on the river to stay alive, but he was left wanting as the useless {2-Clubs} peeled off.

Koon became the first player eliminated from the feature table and exited to a nice round of applause.
