Sam Cohen Eliminated in 9th Place ($38,244)
Hand #5: Matt Salsberg opened for 65,000 from the hijack, Thad McNulty called from the big blind, and the flop came down . McNulty checked, Salsberg bet 75,000, and McNulty called to see the on the turn. McNulty check-called another bet, this time 100,000, and the completed the board on the river. McNulty opted to lead out for 200,000 and Salsberg released his hand.
Hand #6: Action folded to Sam Cohen on the button and she moved all in for 275,000. The blinds folded and Cohen won the pot.
Hand #7: Justin Oliver opened for 65,000 from the hijack only to have Sam Cohen three-bet all in for 360,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and then Oliver thought long and hard before making the call.
It was a race situation, but Cohen was the one that needed to improve. She didn't do it on the flop, and the turn was equally as useless. Cohen needed either a king or queen on the river to stay alive, but it wasn't in the cards as the blanked.
