Jeff Yanchek

Jeff Yanchek open-shipped for 1,100,000 from the button, Ken McAdam folded his small blind, and David Kozma called in the big.

Kozma: AhJs
Yanchek: Ad8s

“I haven’t used my one time yet,” Yanchek half-joked.

He needed a lot of help to double, missed the Ac7s5h flop, and was drawing dead after the Jh turn gave Kozma aces up. Yanchek stood up, the river was Kd, and he collected $37,000 for his fifth place finish.

David Kozma – 7,140,000 (119 bb)
