Event 18: Thanks for Playing

$1,650 Purple Chip Bounty No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)

Level 12:  Blinds 600/1,200/200 ante

Dan DiZenzo and Aleksandr Gorelik busted out and with their departures, the final 18 players drew for seats at the final two tables.

Soon after arriving at their new tables, Steven Bennet was all-in holding pocket Tens against James Calderaro’s AK.  A King hit the board and Steven hit the rail in 18th place.

After Kevin McColgan opened for 2,500 (utg), Aaron Massey raised to 6,900.  Ray Ruszkowski jammed and after Kevin folded, Aaron called.

Ray’s AQ offsuit was dominated by Aaron’s AK offsuit.  The board came J J 5 4 8 and changed nothing.  Ray exited the tournament in 17th place.

Only 12 get paid, so five more will leave empty-handed.
