It was a swift end to Alina Cadar’s tournament after a whole day’s fight towards the final, with pocket jacks being the hand that took her out, in two stages.
Stage 1: Button Cadar raised (with jacks) and called when big blind Una Ortell shoved for 210,000. She found herself wishing to avoid the overcards of Ac Ks.
The board was dealt out: 8d 9s 4s 7c… “One time!” said Ortell suddenly, and decisively. I guess she’d never used this before because the river was the Kh and Cadar hit the rail in 10th place.
