The action folded around to Kelly Minkin on the button, and she raised to 255,000. Frederik Jensen was in the small blind and raised to 715,000. Bart Lybaert folded in the big blind, and the action was back on Minkin.

Minkin made her move and shoved all in for 2.23m. Jensen made the call, and Minkin saw she needed help from the board once more.

Kelly Minkin: {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Frederik Jensen: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Minkin picked up additional outs on the flop when the king and queen appeared to give her a gutshot straight draw. But the board bricked for Minkin, and her elimination in 50th place for $156,265 was confirmed as the Amazon room gave her a loud round of applause for her efforts.

Minkin also had the honor of being named the longest lasting female player in the WSOP Main Event for the second time in four years.
