Event #24: $2,620 THE MARATHON No-Limit Hold'em

Rosenblum Deals Final Blow to Zarco

poolshir • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Javier Zarco

Martin Jacobson raised to 26,000 from mid-position and was called by Peter Rosenblum in the hijack and Javier Zarco in the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, and both Zarco and Jacobson checked. Rosenblum then shoved, Zarco called, and Jacobson quickly folded after looking at his cards again.

Javier Zarco: {Q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Peter Rosenblum: {A-Hearts}{q-Spades}

They had both flopped a pair of queens, but Rosenblum had the better kicker with the ace in his hand.

The rest of the board was completed with the {7-Clubs} on the turn and the {10-Spades} on the river to eliminate Zarco in 54th place.
