Hanna Takes a Hit

Jessica Betrand Hanna

We don't know how the action went exactly, but we do know that day one's end of day chip leader, Jessica Bertrand Hanna had her opponent all in holding {K-}{k-}. Her nemesis in the hand held {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}. A {7-Spades}{j-Spades}{q-Diamonds} flop allowed for Hanna's opponent to grab onto a pair of jacks, which were still only second best to Hana's pair of kings.

An {a-Hearts} on the turn though took the advantage away from Hana. Now she would need a king or a ten on the river in order to take the pot down. The {4-Hearts} was no good though and Hana was forced to give off a sizable chunk of her stack and forfeit the 130,000 pot.
