Paul Freedman raised from the hijack to 23,000, John Bonar moved all in from the cutoff for 129,000, and Steve Ekin moved all in over the top from the big blind for about 190,000. Freedman folded.

Bonar turned over JhJd, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive against Ekin’s AcQs.

The board came Kh3d3cKc5h, and the pocket jacks held up for Bonar to win the pot with two pair, kings and jacks, and double up in chips.

John Bonar  –  296,000  (30 bb)
Steve Ekin  –  60,000  (6 bb)

Two hands later, Ekin was all in from the button for about 60,000 with 6c5c, and he needed to improve to stay alive against the AcKd of Freedman in the big blind.

The board came Kh7d2d7hQh, and Freedman paired his king on the flop to win the pot with two pair, eliminating Ekin in sixth place.

Paul Freedman  –  215,000  (22 bb)
Steve Ekin  –  Eliminated in 6th Place  ($1,492)
