6th Place - Bernstein

$3300 + $200 Championship No Limit Hold'em      

Sam Bernstein (Englewood, NJ)

Sam Bernstein moved in for his last ~750k.  Marc Goldman put in a min-raise and successfully isolated.

Sam held JT.  Marc was ahead with A4.

The board came 6 5 2 7 7 and Marc's Ace-high was good to take the pot.

Sam Bernstein finished in 6th place and will take home $105,279.

Sam is a hedge fund manager in New York and plays poker for fun.  He made the final table of a $5k event at Foxwoods, but this is by far his largest reported cash in a tournament.

His greatest accomplishment outside of poker is paying for his three children's educations.
