Jordan Kaplan

No-Limit Hold'em

William Leffingwell opened from under the gun to 160,000. Action folded around to Jordan Kaplan in the small blind, who moved all in for around 1,000,000. Vegard Andreassen, the big blind, got out of the way, leaving Leffingwell with the last action. He made the call, covering Kaplan, although not by a huge margin.

Jordan Kaplan: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
William Leffingwell: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

Kaplan had Leffingwell dominated and seemed poised to double up. The {5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} flop didn't change much, but the {6-Diamonds} turn brought a flush draw into the picture for Leffingwell. Any diamond or king on the river would knock Kaplan out of the tournament.

When the {a-Diamonds} hit the felt, Leffingwell let out an enormously loud "DIAMOND!" that could be heard throughout Bally's Event Center and possibly beyond. His flush had been made, making Kaplan the first to fall here on Day 3.
