Main Event

Loosing Loos


We've just bid an early farewell to one of our few remaining ladies in the field. The action began with Phil Collins opening to 12,000 from the cutoff, and Galen Hall made a three-bet to 28,000 next door. In the small blind, Jantje Loos raised the rest of her ~50,000 chips into the pot, and Collins folded fairly quickly. Hall made the call, though, and the cards were on their backs with Loos at risk.

Hall: {A-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds}
Loos: {J-Clubs} {J-Spades}

Hall's horsey pulled out to a quick lead on the {Q-Spades} {7-Hearts} {5-Spades}, and Loos would not be able to catch back up. The turn {A-Diamonds} and river {Q-Hearts} ended up making him a full house, and Loos has been forced off to the rail as one of the first casualties of this Day 3.
