Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Yang Eliminated

Jerry Yang

2007 WSOP Main Event champion Jerry Yang's run here in this year's Main Event has ended on Day 3.

In his last hand, Yang opened with a raise from middle position, then Armando Fernandez reraised from the button. It folded back to Yang who called, and the flop came {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. Yang checked, Fernandez bet 25,000, Yang check-raised all in, and Fernandez called immediately.

Yang: {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Fernandez: {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Yang was ahead with a pair of tens for the moment, but the {K-Clubs} fell on the turn to give Fernandez a straight. Yang still had a ton of ways to reclaim the lead on the river, but the {9-Hearts} wasn't one of them, and he hits the rail with about an hour to go before dinner. Meanwhile, Fernandez joins the half-million chip club.
