Jason Koon is fresh off his massive win in the PokerStars Championship Bahamas $100K Super High Roller and jumped into the Main Event action late on Day 1b yesterday.
He's back in the mix today, looking to scoop his second trophy of the series.
On a board reading , with about 20,000 in the pot, the small blind checked, as did Koon. Harry Ratchford, screenwriter for much of Kevin Hart's work, bet 4,500. The small blind called, and Koon check-raised all in for a total of 24,200. Ratchford went into the tank and agonized over his decision before opting to fold.
The player in the small blind claimed to have flopped a straight. He went into the tank, looking at Koon and then back at the board. While Koon was waiting to find out his fate, Ratchford got down and started doing push-ups. Koon didn't flinch as this was going on the background. The small blind folded and Koon said, "You must have had seven-eight of spades" as he raked in the pot.
