The Pittsburgh Hammer Day 2 10th Place – Robert Nolen ($1,390)


Rivers Poker Room tournament regular Robert Nolen, a fixture at the final table of many big events here, is the first elimination of our final table. Robert got all-in pre-flop in a race with chip leader Iverson Snuffer. Nolen held  AQ♣ against the J J♣ of Snuffer. The board ran out 9♣ 10♠ 7♠ 6♣ 8♣ to give both players a straight, but Snuffer held the jacks to make the higher straight and send Nolen home. Nolen had been short stacked for the last several hours and did a great job to fight his way to his 10th place finish.
