After a player in middle position raised to 75, John Monnette moved all in for 975 right behind. Jessica Bian made the call from the button, while the original raiser opted to get out of the way.
Monnette, who won a bracelet this summer and is contending for WSOP Player of the Year, was in bad shape and in need of some help. The flop was far from what he was looking for, and the turn left him looking for an ace on the river. Monnette seemed to know it wasn't in the cards as he was up out of his seat and collecting his things. Sure enough, the blanked and Monnette made an early exit. The good news is he can try again tomorrow if he so chooses.
