Event 22: Jon Borenstein – 7th Place ($35,500)

$2,650 No Limit Hold’em (Freeze-Out)
Level 27: 25,000/50,000/5,000 Ante

Jon Borenstein opened for a min-raise from the button and Xuan Lui came along in the big blind to see the Jh7c6c flop. Liu check called 135,000 before the Qd turn.

Liu checked again and Borenstein bet 260,000. Liu check raised him all-in and he called with 7d7h. His set was a big favorite against Liu’s two pair Qh6s and needed to dodge two river outs.

Borenstein’s tournament ended with some bad luck when the Qs river hit to send him out in 7th place for $35,000.

Borenstein: Eliminated in 7th
Liu: 3,800,000
