Konnikova's Run Ends in 42nd Place

Chad_Holloway • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 12,000 ante
Maria Konnikova

We missed the elimination of Maria Konnikova as it happened but she was kind enough to fill us in on some details after the fact.

As she told it, she got short in a big hand against Justin Young. It happened when she raised from early position and Young defended the big blind. The {8-}{6-}{2-} two-club flop saw Young check and Konnikova continued. Young check-raised, Konnikova shoved, and Young called off.

Justin Young: {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Maria Konnikova: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Konnikova had the better flush draw but a three on the river would give Young the win. Konnikova was left short and busted her last 4.5 bb a short time later running {a-}{j-} into {k-}{k-}. Konnikova hit the rail in 42nd place for $15,101.
