Event 3: Redraw At 27…26

$150 No Limit Hold’em

Level 23:  Blinds 12k/24k/3k ante

They reached the final 27, um, 26 players and did a redraw for the final three tables. 

Then there was a flurry of bustouts too fast to follow.

The biggest hand came with three players all in on a flop of Qh9c7s.  Joe Noel had the shortest stack and held JcTd for the open-ended straight draw.  Jennifer Welch held QcTh for top pair.  Manny Minaya had the big stack and held 9d7h for two pair.

The last two fell JdAd and changed nothing.  Manny scooped both pots, busting both opponents.  He chipped up to about 2.5 million.

Joe finished 23rd and Jennifer finished 22nd (both earn $566).
