Hand #53: Jason Koon Eliminated in 4th Place ($225,680)
Level 29: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Jason Koon raises from the button to 250,000, and Randal Flowers calls in the big blind. The flop comes K88, Flowers checks, Koon bets 250,000, and Flowers calls. The turn card is the 9, Flowers checks, and Koon thinks a bit before he bets 575,000, and Flowers calls.
The river card is the 7, Flowers checks, and Koon thinks a bit before he bets 1,500,000. Flowers thinks for about 20 seconds and says, "All in." Koon doesn't seem pleased, but he reluctantly calls anyway.
Koon shows 65 for a nine-high straight, but Flowers turns over J10 to win the pot with a jack-high straight. Jason Koon is eliminated in fourth place, while Randal Flowers catapults to a massive chip lead -- he has much more than the other two players combined.
