Event 20: 7th Place - Ruffman

$200 + $30 Deep Stack NLH (Re-Entry)

Ruthie "Crazy Elf" Ruffman (Colts Neck, NJ)
$3,480

In a hand that will be dissected over and over, Ruffman is on the rail in one of the most dramatic hands we've seen during the Borgata Summer Poker Open.

Ruffman: 2.77 million
Jose Montes 4.370 million

Blinds: 30k/60k/5k ante

Ruffman (Cutoff) raises to 275k
Montes (Button) 3-bets to 575k total
Ruffman calls

Flop: 2♣ 2 2♠

Ruffman bets 650k
Montes raises to 1.5 million total
Ruffman 3-bets all in for 2.195 million total (695k more)

Montes, with 2.2 million remaining goes in the tank, counts, recounts and eventually calls

Ruffman: 9♠ 9 (full house)
Montes: K♣ J♠

Turn: 2 (Montes leads with quad 2s, king kicker, Ruffman needs an ace or king to chop)

River: J♣

Montes king kicker plays with the quad 2s and a stunned Ruffman is out after a great run. Montes now has 7.25 million, more than half the chips in play.
