Shooting Star Jennifer Tilly Eliminated by Vivek Rajkumar ($5,000)
Level 2: 50-100, ante
Shooting Star Jennifer Tilly raises under the gun, Vivek Rajkumar reraises from middle position to 900, Tilly reraises, and Rajkumar moves all in, easily covering her entire stack. Tilly quickly calls for about 8,000 with AA, and Rajkumar shows 55.
TD Matt Savage announces the board with little drama -- until the river. The final board shows 974105, and Rajkumar spikes a set of fives on the river to win the pot, bust Tilly, and collect an autographed t-shirt and $5,000. The other players and the fans on the rail all groan at the bad beat against crowd favorite Jennifer Tilly.
