Event 18: 5th Place - Young

$500 + $60 Six-Max No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

Orson Young (Oceanport, NJ) 

Orson Young's day comes to an end at the hands of Brian England.  Young is one of the more active players on Twitter and recounts his last few hands:

Orson Young

Won kt vs k9 on king high board to stack someone. Then immediately doubled someone else for more kq < a9 aipf.
Then immediately doubled same guy. He 4 bet all in a6 > kk. Then lost tt to same guys ak. Out in 5th.
Translation: England hit an ace with A 6 against Young's pocket kings for a 1 million chip pot. Young then busts with pocket 10s against England's AK when an ace hits the river.

Young has been playing poker professionally for one year after graduating with a degree in Actuarial Science.  Translation: He's good with stats that would be helpful to insurance companies, but right now it's helping his poker game.

Look for Young in the $1k 6-max Saturday and says he's prepared to fire two bullets in the Championship event.
