14th Place - James Ostrander

$2000 +$200 Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em
Championship Event Day 3

James Ostrander

James Ostrander has a ton of outs on the river, but can't connect against Joshua Hakakian and finishes the Borgata Summer Poker Open Championship in 14th place.

On a board of 9 8 4 7, Hakakian bets 45k. Ostrander makes it 140k and Hakakian moves all-in. Ostrander makes the call with his final 250k and is at risk.

Hakakian: A K
Ostrander: A 10

Ostrander has 18 outs with straight and flush draws and can still hit a 10, but the river is the 3 and Ostrander misses everything. "I have to call," he says while walking to the cage to collect his $6,227. "I'm open ended, have a flush draw and only have 250 behind."

Hakakian's ace-king high wins the pot and he's now up to 1.6 million after being on the verge of elimination earlier in the day.

Blinds: 8k/16k/2k ante.
