Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

"The Shadow" Has Vanished From The Tournament

2007 WSOP Main Event Champ Jerry "The Shadow" Yang has been eliminated here early into Level 2 of this year's Main Event.

From late position, Yang raised it up to 1,050 and Rob Goldstein in the cutoff re-raised to 2,250. Yang called and the two saw the {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop. Yang checked, Goldstein bet 2,500, Yang raised to 6,000, Goldstein re-raised to 12,500 and apparently even told Yang "You're beat here Jerry, you should fold." But Yang clearly didn't believe him as Yang pushed all in for 21,400 and was called by Goldstein.

Goldstein showed {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for a set of jacks while Yang had {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for top two pair. The turn and river were the {6-Spades} and the {q-Clubs}. Yang did not improve and he becomes one of only a few eliminations this early on in the tournament.
