Jason Somerville got lucky not long ago when his nines cracked Eric Buchman's tens in an all-in preflop situation, but it seemed lady luck has turned her back. In a recent hand, Somerville raised to 105,000 from middle position only to have Jacob Balsiger move all in from the big blind. Somerville quickly called off for 840,000 and was a big favorite.
Unfortunately for Somerville, the flop came down and gave Balsiger trips. Somerville needed a queen to stay alive, but it was not to be as the appeared on the turn followed by the on the river.
Somerville, who finished in 69th place for $106,056, did a quick exit interview with Kara Scott in which he was humble, gracious and reiterated that he had a great time.
