Champ: 5th Place - Cornell

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH   

Cameron Cornell (Asbury Park, NY)

Blinds: 20k/40k, 4k ante

Jia Liu opened for 100k on the button, Robert Pardo flatted from the small blind, then Cameron Cornell shoved from the big blind.

Jia folded and Robert asked for the count.  It was 567k more to him.  After a little think-time, he made the call.

Cameron had AJ offsuit and was dominating Robert's KJ offsuit.

Then the board ran out 5 4 4 K 6 and Robert hit a 3-outer on the turn to take the pot.

Cameron Cornell finished in 5th place, earning $70,280.

Cameron makes his living as a day trader, which has to be way more stressful than playing poker.  He's got a handful of cashes here at Borgata, including a final table during the 2012 Winter Open, but this is his largest tournament cash on record.
