Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Deeb in Trouble

Things are not going well for Shaun Deeb post-dinner.

We picked up the last pot on the turn of a {3-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {2-Hearts} {6-Spades} board. Ali Eslami was leading the betting with 17,000, and Deeb stuck in a raise that we couldn't count. Eslami responded by shoving all in for 128,000, and Deeb made the call with {Q-Clubs} {9-Clubs}. His top pair was out-kicked, though, and Eslami's {Q-Spades} {J-Spades} had him poised for a double.

The river {A-Diamonds} did nothing to change the situation, and Deeb has been parted with another chunk. That loss moves him all the way down to 112,000, doubling Eslami up to 288,000 in the process.

Ali Eslami us 288,000 93,000
Shaun Deeb us 112,000 -148,000
