Tuna Done Defending

• Level 9: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

Jorryt van Hoof limped in from under the gun and action folded to Akin Tuna in the big blind who opted to check.

The flop came {10-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}, Tuna check-called the 3,000 bet of Van Hoof.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, Tuna checked again and now Van Hoof continued with a bet of 7,500. Tuna shoved and Van Hoof quickly called with {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}. Tuna held {j-Clubs}{4-Clubs}.

They both flopped a pair of jacks but Van Hoof was ahead with the higher kicker. The river completed the board with the {10-Clubs} for Tuna's second bullet to not hit a target either as the defending champion was eliminated.
