Koon's Double Knockout Brings Us to Bubble

Jason Koon records the double knockout, and is just short of a million chips.

Manny Jo open-shoved for his last 56,000 from the cutoff seat, Jason Koon called on the button, and Keven Stammen tanked, then re-shoved for a little over 100,000 from the small blind. Koon called the extra 50,000 or so, and all three hands were opened.

Jo: {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Koon: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Stammen: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

The {6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop smacked Koon right in the head, giving him a leading pair of kings. The turn and river bricked {6-Hearts}, {8-Clubs} respectively, and both Jo and Stammen were eliminated from the tournament.

We are now playing hand-for-hand, and the next player eliminated will be the bubble boy.
