Event #69: $1,000 Mini Main Event

Koji Takagi Eliminated in 5th Place ($160,715)

zedmaster84 • Level 44: 2,000,000-4,000,000, 4,000,000 ante
Koji Takagi & Lula Taylor

Hand #59: Koji Takagi raised to 10,500,000 in the small blind and Lula Taylor called from the big blind to see the {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop, which brought an instant jam of Takagi for 31,500,000 and a quick call from Taylor. The rails of all the remaining players vaulted out of their seats to see the showdown unfold on the screens around the table itself.

Koji Takagi: {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Lula Taylor: {j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}

The {10-Diamonds} turn was a blank, but Lula Taylor spiked the {j-Hearts} on the river to gasps of disbelief from the Japanese rail and her own supporters. Takagi, on the verge of going from bottom stack to chip leader, has been eliminated in 5th place for $160,715 instead in the most brutal fashion.
