It didn’t take long for action to heat up in Level 21 as Stan Jablonski hit the rail in the first orbit. Jablonski was among the chip leaders heading into the final table but saw his stock plummet in relatively short order as his chips spread across the table in various small pots.
Jablonski’s primary tormentor was Stan Fudor and it was Fudor who showed Jablonski the door once play resumed. From the hijack, Jablonski open-shoved for 326,000 and found a call from Fudor in the small blind. It wasn’t a pretty sight for Jablonski as his K♥Q♥ was dominated by Fudor’s A♥Q♦.
The A♠6♥4♣ flop opened a few backdoor outs for Jablonski and the 7♥ turn gave him a little bit more life. There was no heart on the river, though, and he will take home $4,793 for his finish. Fudor is now over 1,000,000 and breathing right down the neck of chip leader Zachary Mullennix.
