Jason Koon Eliminated in 9th Place ($22,435)
Level 23 : 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Hand #29: A short-stacked Jason Koon moved all in from middle position for 59,000 and Brent Hanks three-bet it to 100,000 from late position. Amit Makhija took his time in the cutoff before four-betting to 200,000, and Hanks moved all in after action folded back to him. Makhija made the call and discovered the bad news.
Hanks had Makhija dominated, while Koon's best chance at survival was an ace. The flop gave Koon a pair of fours, but he'd need another to make it count. The turn wasn't what he needed, and neither was the river. Koon was dispatched in ninth place while Hanks doubled through Makhija.
