Radu Panfils was all in earlier in the night holding pocket queens against the pocket kings of his opponent. He was in tough shape until the miracle queen on the river saved his tournament life.
He was not so lucky with queens here in the late stages of the tournament as the action folded to Jay Rosenberg in the cutoff. Rosenberg raised to 23,000 and it folded to Panfils in the big blind who moved all in for 84,000.
Rosenberg made the call turning over [name="ac"] [name="7s"] and Panfils was in great shape to double up with [name="qd"] [name="qc"]. The dealer fanned the [name="ad"] [name="9h"] [name="jc"]flop and Rosenberg paired his ace in the window to take the lead. The turn [name="8c"] gave Panfils some hope as he would pick up a gutshot straight draw but the [name="5d"] river was no help. Rosenberg scooped the pot and Panfils was sent to the rail just shy of the money.
Jay Rosenberg- 250,000
