Rachid Ben Cherif Eliminated in 17th Place ($59,980)
Rachid Ben Cherif had a heater earlier in the day, but since then his stack has done nothing but go down. To make matters worse, Cherif was just eliminated in one of the nastiest ways possible.
It happened when Nick Schulman opened for 20,000 under the gun and Cherif shoved all in for 259,000 from the small blind. Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst then asked for a count from the big blind before moving all in over the top. Schulman snap-folded and the cards were tabled.
It was a race, but the flop made Cherif a big favorite. In fact, the PokerNews Odds Calculator tells us that he was a 70.4% favorite to double. The river made that 79.55%, but then the spiked on the river to counterfeit Cherif and send him home in 17th place.
