Event 23: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Naquin Gets There; Poor Ashley Mason

Jacob Naquin has 4 World Series of Poker (WSOP) cashes to his name including a 4th place finish in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event last year. He now has 200,000 after 'getting there' against British pro Ashley Mason.

We joined the action on a flop of {J-Hearts} {8-Hearts} {2-Diamonds}, Naquin had moved all-in and Mason was in the tank. After several minutes thought Mason called and was ahead when the cards were turned onto their backs.

WSOP bracelet holder James Dempsey raced over from a nearby table where he was playing a different event.

"Have it Mason…have it," said Dempsey.

Mason did have it, but not after the board had finished it's dirty work. The turn {3-Diamonds} and river {7-Hearts} reversing the fortunes and the pot went the way of Naquin.
