First into the pot from the hijack, Nikolaos Alafogiannis open-shoved for 460,000, and the action paused on Martin Jacobson next door. After a couple moments, he said, "I'm all in, too," and slid a tower of chips across the line. That folded everyone else quickly, and Alafogiannis was at risk for the nth time today. He liked his chances once again.
"You called me with king-queen?!" Alafogiannis asked, halfway serious. He was standing now as the dealer burned one and gave him favorable flop.
Suddenly, David Bernstein appeared from the featured table, and he came over to root, "Jack!" and sweat the last two cards. "Jack!"
The turn was the blank , though, but the foreshadowing came in on fifth. The ol' dropped off the deck, and a couple people quickly said, "Good game," happy to have finally shaken the pesky Alafogiannis. He laddered up like a champ today with a variety of interesting doubles, but he could not find one more double on his final hand. He's out in 13th place, good for a $70,000 consolation prize.
