RG NKC MAIN EVENT (DAY 2): BLUMSTEIN IS FIRST CASUALTY

Level 13 (2000/3000/3000)
Total Entrants: 391
Players remaining: 87
Chip average: 89,885

We missed the hand but we have lost 2017 WSOP Main Event Champion Scott Blumstein in the first orbit of Day 2 play. The players at the table recounted the action for us.

Nick Murdock opens the pot and the action folds to Blumstein. Blumstein tanks briefly before moving all-in. Murdock has Blumstein covered and quickly calls.

Scott Blumstein - KxQx
Nick Murdock - AxAx

The flop brings Blumstein an open-ended straight draw when it comes JxTx8x, but his straight fails to arrive on the 5x turn and Jx river, and Blumstein exits the tournament in 88th place.

Nick Murdock - 142,000
Scott Blumstein - Eliminated
