His aggressive betting style didn’t aid him in getting more chips and now he goes back to Israel nearly $2,000,000 richer. Stern was up against Neil Blumenfield who had Ace King while Stern held Ace Jack. As the flop unfolded 7h, 5s, 3d, Blumenfield kept his lead. Then King of diamonds came on the turn giving Blumenfield the pair. The Queen completed the set. Stern bowed out at 5th place.
Max Steinberg is also out. He failed to get any great chip counts and a bluff left him in the dust against Neil Blumenfield. Steinberg had unsuited 2 and 3 against Blumenfield’s pair of Queens. He folded in a raise and left him with 18,250,000 chips. Finally Joe McKeehen stepped in with a raise holding Ace Queen, Steinberg who held Ace Jack went all in for 16,500,000 chips and was effectively out with Mckeehen’s Queen kicker. He’ll collect $2,600,000 for his work.
The remain three, Beckly, McKeehen, and Blumenfield meet Tuesday in the finale!!
