Jason Koon Eliminated in 3rd Place ($616,180)

Jason Koon

Action fell on Niklas Astedt in the small blind and he elected to raise enough to put Jason Koon to the test, putting in 2,400,000 and Koon called his last 1,182,517 into the middle.

Jason Koon: {j-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Niklas Astedt: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The flop fell {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Koon was still in need of a connection with the board or he would be taking an exit in third place.

A {2-Clubs} was of no help as Koon needed to pair up but the {k-Spades} river was not the card he needed, sending him out the door in third for a respectable $616,180 for his efforts. Astedt now takes a massive chip lead into heads-up play.
