Jamey Kramer Eliminated by Carlos Mortensen
Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Joe Serock raises from early position to 9,000, Carlos Mortensen reraises from middle position to 18,000, and Todd Terry calls from late position. Jamey Kramer tanks from the cutoff.
While Kramer is thinking, Level 14 comes to an end, and the other table leaves for a 15-minute break. The tournament clock begins counting down the break, and Todd Terry asks a nearby floorperson, "Can we hold the clock until this hand is done? I have a feeling this one could take a while." The floorperson tells him that if the hand lasts a long time, they'll put some time back on the clock to extend the break.
Kramer eventually calls from the cutoff, and Serock quickly folds. There are three players in the pot.
The flop comes 954, Mortensen checks, Terry checks, and Kramer moves all in for 84,500. Mortensen calls, and Terry folds QQ face up and says, "I'm glad I played this the way I did."
Kramer shows JJ for an overpair, but Mortensen shows 55 for a set of fives. Kramer will need to improve to stay alive.
The turn is the 6, and Kramer picks up a heart flush draw. The river card is the 8, and Mortensen wins the pot with his set of fives to eliminate Kramer from the tournament.
Carlos Mortensen - 288,500
Todd Terry - 505,500
