Jason Koon

Jason Koon was able to pull a few chips back from Rainer Kempe then made another move to really get back in the game.

Adrian Mateos opened to 22,000 and Koon moved all-in from the button for 309,000. Kempe moved all-in over the top from the small blind to get heads up.

“Please have AK,” Koon said.

Kempe: AdKh
Koon: 6c6h

Koon was ahead and racing to stay in the game but Kempe hit immediately on the KdJd9c flop. The Kc turn left Koon with two river outs but he blanked the Ts river to exit in fifth place.

Rainer Kempe – 1,200,000 (120 bb)
Jason Koon – Eliminated in 5th place ($110,432)

Jason Koon opened to 23,000 from the button and Rainer Kempe called heads up a Js5c4s flop. Kempe bet 29,000 and Koon raised it up to 115,000. After a few moments, Kempe announced all-in and Koon quickly called.

Kempe: AdJh
Koon: QcQh

Kempe’s top pair was behind Koon’s overpair until the Ah turn gave Kempe the lead. No love for Koon on the 3c river and Kempe picked up a big double.

Rainer Kempe – 970,000 (97 bb)
Jason Koon – 210,000 (21 bb)

Rainer Kempe and David Peters each took a shot with a pre-flop shove, neither which were called, and Kempe built a bigger pot with Dietrich Fast.

Fast opened to 25,000 from under the gun and Kempe called to the KhQh8c flop. Kempe checked, Fast bet 20,000 and Kempe check/raised to 70,000. Fast thought for a bit before calling to the Ts turn.

After a few minutes to ponder, Kempe moved all-in for 183,000 and it was Fast’s turn to think. He released his hand and Kempe built up his stack.

Seat 1: Jason Koon – 623,000 (62 bb)
Seat 2: Rainer Kempe – 480,000 (48 bb)
Seat 3: Dietrich Fast – 900,000 (90 bb)
Seat 4: David Peters – 417,000 (42 bb)
Seat 5: Adrian Mateos – 1,080,000 (108 bb)
