Event 7: One Match Down, Three To Go

$250 No Limit Hold’em Heads Up

Nancy Birnbaum has just been eliminated in eight place at the hands of Antonio Campbell when the two got it all in on a flop of QcTs9d with Campbell holding JdJh for a pair of jacks and open-ended straight draw and Birnbaum holding AxAx for the over pair. The turn gave Campbell the straight as it was the 8s and Birnbaum was left hoping for one of the two remaining jacks in the deck for the board to make a straight and split the pot.

The river was the 6d though and that would be the end of Birnbaum’s tournament. She collected $655 for her finish.
