Championship: Neil Blumenfield Crippled, Eliminated

$2,500 Coco Poker Open Championship
Level 19: 4,000/8,000/1,000 Ante

Michael Ortiz limps in from the button, Neil Blumenfield completes from the small blind, and James Brown checks his option in the big.

The flop comes KcTc8s, and it checks to Ortiz, who moves all in for about 90,000. Blumenfield calls with the covering stack, and Brown folds out of the way. Ortiz is at risk, and the news is not good.

Ortiz: Kd3d (top pair)
Blumenfield: Th8h (bottom two pair)

The turn and river come 5s and 5d, and Blumenfield’s two pair are counterfeited. Ortiz wins with kings up, doubling up and reducing his opponent to┬áless than 40,000 chips.

Blumenfield is eliminated on the next hand, signaling the end of Day 2.

Michael Ortiz – 210,000
Neil Blumenfield – Eliminated
