Jesse Cohen (Ardmore, PA)
The first player to be dispatched was Jesse Cohen. He will pick up $1,650 for 18th place.
I missed the hand, but Jesse summed it up well in his Tweet:
Snap busted, reshoved ATo otb over aggro hj opener, bb woke up with kings
Lisa Wang opened for 8k utg, got one caller, then Mike Dentale (bb) moved all-in for 36,800. Lisa called and the other player opted out.
Mike had pocket Kings. Lisa had AQ off. The board came 5 4 2 9 K and Mike improved to a set. He more than doubled up on that hand.
