Level 11: Limits 1,200/2,400
Players Remaining: 48 of 82
As Level 10 was coming to an end, Jerry Yavner was trying to keep his tournament alive. He was in a three-way Stud/8 pot with Sandy Demaskey and another player. The rivers were dealt, Demaskey led out for the 2K big bet with her board reading and Yavner moved all-in for 1,800, less than a min-raise, with showing. The third player bailed and Demaskey called.
Yavener flipped over for a seven-high straight and 6-5 low for the scoop after Demaskey mucked her hand. Demaskey’s stack dropped down near the felt while Yavner’s 22,800 put him back over a starting stack.
