Event 5: Jacob Hollingsworth Eliminated in 12th Place ($847)

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 23: 10,000/20,000/3,000


Jacob Hollingsworth (pictured) and Ronnie Elkhatib got all the chips in the middle preflop with Hollingsworth at risk for his last 205,000.

Hollingsworth was a big favorite with his KsKh up against Elkhatib’s 9c8c. The flop gave Elkhatib a lot of outs as it came Jc8h6c, giving Elkhatib a flush draw and middle pair.

The turn was the 9d, giving Elkhatib two pair and the lead. The river is the Ad and Hollingsworth’s pocket kings went down in flames.

It took a few moments to verify that Elkhatib had the bigger stack and then Hollingsworth headed to the cage. Elkhatib sits with 410,000.
