Jason Gooch Flops Trips to Eliminate Mark Johnson Jr.

Mark Johnson Jr. raised to 1,000 under the gun and Jason Gooch defended the big blind. They were heads up to the flop of 8s 8d 7c and Gooch checked. Johnson bet 1,100, Gooch raised to 2,750, and Johnson moved all in for his remaining 15,000 chips. Gooch called and they showed down. Johnson had pocket queens for an over-pair, but Gooch had Ah 8h for trips. The 7s turn gave Gooch a full house, and the 9h river couldn’t save Johnson. Gooch is up to 43,000 after that hand, and Johnson is out of the tournament.
