Zimnan Ziyard Eliminated in 12th Place ($13,405)

Zimnan Ziyard - 12th place

It's the end of a long and perilous road for Zimnan Ziyard. He's just been eliminated in 12th place after three days of roller-coaster poker in which he was down under 1 big bet or less several times.


His final hand began with him open-raising his last 31,000 into the middle under the gun. David Rogers and Ylon Schwartz (big blind) came along with him, and they checked to the river on the {4-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {10-Hearts} board as Ziyard stood up in between them sweating his fate. On the river, Rogers made a bet, and Ziyard figured that might not be good news. When Schwartz folded, Rogers tabled {K-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} for two pair.

Ziyard rolled over his {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds} — good, but second best by the river. He has been eliminated in 12th place, but he received a nice parting compliment from Ylon Schwartz.

"Great player," Schwartz acknowledged. "You'll make a lot of money."

This one's not really "a lot of money" for Ziyard, but the $13,000+ he'll pocket is a respectable consolation prize for his run.
