Monolith Champ gets a @HPTPoker KO
@Jasthi_Kumar took down last weekend's 909-entry $425 Monolith (with a $250,000 guarantee that ended up being a $327,000-plus prize pool). Today he just took out HPT Reno 5th place finisher Marty Gorenc in a hand that Gorenc relayed to the Hold'em Radio World Reporting Headquarters.
Gorenc opened to 500 with and Kumar made it 1500 preflop. "I knew what he was doing, so I made it 2500," said Gorenc, and he said Kumar made the call.
The flop of had to make Gorenc twitch a bit thinking he'd flopped a Royal Flush. he did, however, flop broadway, and with just 10,000 behind, he shipped his remaining chips into the middle.
Kumar, he said, snap-called and turned over for a flopped flush.
Gorenc is on his way over to register for the $350 10-seat-guarantee multi-table satellite. he says he's buying in tomorrow for Day 1B whether he wins a seat via the satellite.
