Jake Ferro

Jake Ferro made it through to this afternoon’s action, in the money but only 25K to put to work. He kicked off his Day 2 under the gun, folded his hand, and in the big blind for the next. There was a middle position limper, Thomas Kornechuk completed his small blind, and Ferro checked his option in the big.

The flop came 6d5s4c, Kornechuk bet 5,000 and Ferro moved all in for 17,000. The OG raiser folded and Kornechuk called.

Ferro: 5d2d
Kornechuk: 9h7d

Ferro was ahead with his paired five but needed to dodge an open-ended straight draw and two overs. He made two pair on the 2c turn but the 8d river filled the straight for Kornechuk to send the former WPT Player of the Year out early in the day.

Thomas Kornechuk – 145,000 (36 bb)
