Alcorn Among Latest Casualties

Event #1: $250 NLHE
Level 6: Blinds 200-400 BBA 400
126 / 186 Remaining

With some 9,500 in the middle to the Jc10c8s7h turn, Heather Alcorn had around 6,500 behind and her sole opponent in the hand had pushed forward a pile of T-1,000 chips that covered this. After some consideration, Alcorn announced the call with the words “alright, I want to gamble” before showing the KcQd for the open-ended straight draw.

She only had eight outs to a straight as her opponent revealed Jd8d for two pair. None of the outs came as the 5s river spelled the end for Alcorn.
