Event 16: 4th Place - Klein

$2500 + $200 Championship NLH

Andrew Klein - 4th Place - $58,746

The hand that crippled Andrew Klein (Long Branch, NJ) was when he held 9 9♣ on a flop of 8♠ 10♠ 7♠.

Andrew shoved all in and Tyng Low goes into the tank. He stands up and says, "Holy Cow" (or at least what the cow does in the field).

Finally Low calls and tables the best hand 8♣ 8 for a set of eights.

No player has a spade.

Turn...K River.....7

Low doubles and Klein is left with only 175,000.

The very next hand he wakes up to A-K, jams it, and runs into 7-7 of Farid Jattin.

Andrew's Big Slick did not improve on a board of 9-5-2-3-3.

Klein was a gentleman in the loss, shaking everyone's hand. The other players seemed to respect and like Andrew.

Andrew is a member of NYSE / Designed trading system and is a broker/trader by profession.
His poker stock has gone up as this amateur poker player just made the biggest score of his career with $7,768 for his fourth place finish at Borgata.

Andrew loves playing all sports and today he hit a home-run but fell short of the grand slam.

We're down to three...
