Event 4: Ian Pearson – 8th Place ($658)

$250 Big Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 19: Blinds 4,000/8,000/1,000 ante

They kept their foot on the gas and the next big hand saw Julian Gallo get a much needed double up with AhKd but Ian Pearson wasn’t so lucky.

He was stuck with just 31,000 and he open-shoved for every one of them. It folded around to Avi Hakmon in the small blind and he just called. Frank Simms considered a call in the big blind but let it go.

Pearson laughed and said “I’m live” as he rolled over Td4c and was against Hakmon’s Qc9c. Pearson added a wheel draw on the Ac3h2c flop but was sent out in 8th when the board completed 2c7h. He picked up $658 for his efforts.
