Michael Khan Eliminated in 11th Place ($8,500)

Michael Khan
Michael Khan

Michael Khan moved all-in for 3,150,000 from the cutoff and Garrett Dansereau moved in over the top from the small blind.

"You moved all-in too quick. That's not good" said Khan as he tabled {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. He was right, as Dansereau showed {10-Spades}{10-Hearts} to have him dominated.

The board ran out {j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}{9-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Khan was eliminated in 11th place.

Gerones Doubles Through Czaja

[user270022] • Level 30: 120,000-240,000, 240,000 ante

Aaron Czaja opened to 550,000 from under-the-gun and called a three-bet jam of 3,895,000 from Carlos Gerones out of the big blind.

Gerones: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Czaja: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Gerones was dominated and in trouble but like many domination-nation all-in pots so far today, the board ran out {9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and the worst hand pre came from behind and won the pot.

Karim Abdelhamid was all-in from the hijack for his last 1,660,000 chips and Aaron Czaja moved in over top from the cutoff.

Abdelhamid was at risk and well behind with {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, up against Czaja's {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Czaja flopped a set to take an overwhelming lead. The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Abdelhamid was drawing dead to the {3-Spades} on the river.
