Quenneville Falls Short of Another Repeat Performance
Nível 27 : 600,000-1,200,000, 1,200,000 ante
The action folded around to Jason Koon on the button who raised to 2.8 million. Troy Quenneville was in the small blind and three-bet to 8.8 million. The big blind folded and Koon stuck in a pile of T5,000,000 chips, enough to Quenneville's stack. Quenneville took a look at the tournament clock and then called.
The board ran out and Koon's pocket fives held on to eliminate Quenneville. Last year at this same event, Quenneville made a deep run all the way to second place, along with winning the $2,500 side event as well. He has had plenty of deep runs in Punta Cana, but this one fell a little bit short.
