Event 4: 7th Place - Kern

$500 + $60 No Limit Hold'em  

Matt Mazzeo opened for 30k utg.  Action folded around to John Kern in the big blind, who called.

The flop came QJ♠9 and John checked.  Matt bet 45k.  John shoved and Matt snap-called.

John held T♣4♣ for the open-ended straight-draw -- he was actually ahead of Matt's 87, but Matt had a lot of outs with the gutshot, flush draw, and two live cards.

 John Kern (Harrisburg, PA)

The turn was the 3 and changed nothing.  Then the 7♠ hit the river, giving Matt a pair of 7s and the pot.  He chipped up to ~1.4 million and the chip lead.  JoeVerrecchia has about 1.1 million.

John Kern finished in 7th place, earning $6,399.
