Event 12: Two More Departures

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry) 

Jack Marji

A short-stack was all-in and Jack Marji (Yonkers, NY) made the call with AQ.  He was racing against pocket Tens.  The board came Q 9 8 3 7 and Jack took the pot, sending another player to the rail.  Jack is now up to ~1.2 million.

On the next table over, a player opened up front for 120k and Niko Markatos moved in on him.  The short-stack called all-in, showing pocket Queens.  Nike held KQ and was drawing slim, but a King on the flop was all he needed.  Niko took the pot, sending another player home.
