Unless Frederick Coffey survived a flight with exactly starting stack (30,000), he’s one of dozens of ultra-late registrants in the Main Event and has put his first five minutes at the tables to good use. He three-bet opener Michael Stephens in position from 2,500 to 7,100 preflop; call.
The flop: 8d Tc 4h. Stephens checked, Coffey bet 3,100 and Stephens called.
The turn: Ah. Another check to Coffey, who wasted no time moving in for the rest (20,800). Stephens made the call with the just out-kicked Ad Qh and Coffey’s As Kc took the pot after a brick river. Stephens drops to 23,000.
