Event #7: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Knockout Deepstack

Jeff "mavsusc" Platt Eliminated in 7th Place ($12,657.22)

BrandonTemple • Level 41: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Joon "jykpoker" Kim jammed in the small blind, and Jeff "mavsusc" Platt tanked for a short time in the big blind before calling off his last 3,312,484.

Jeff "mavsusc" Platt: {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Joon "jykpoker" Kim: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Platt's king-high call preflop had him ahead of Kim's queen-nine, but the {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{10-Spades} flop was unforgiving, as Kim found top pair and a gutshot for the lead. The {3-Spades} turn and {4-Spades} river wouldn't bring Platt a king, and the PokerNews Podcast co-host was left with 7th place and $12,657.22 for his deep run.
