Natalie Bereznyak - (Rumson, NJ)
Natalie had a nice double up three handed when her 77 held up against Darin's A-3 suited.
Dry board of 6-6-5-Q-K. With that pot she had 400,000.
Shorter stacked Darin continued to put on the pressure, shipping what felt like every hand.
The hand that crippled Natalie was when Darin jammed with J-8 and Natalie snapped with 9-9. If she wins this pot she secures second place and felts Darin. But it wasn't meant to be.
Board ran: J-10-J-7-Q. Not only did Darin flop three Jacks, she also hit a spade flush.
Natalie was down to 139,000 only to jam and lose the very next hand.
See following posts for three-way all in that knocks Natalie out in third place and crowns our Champion.
Husband Boris watched from the rail the entire tournament.
Great payday for Natalie who'll take home $5,618 for one day of poker grinding.
