Najeem Ajez

Najeem Ajez open-shoved for the third time in five hands and while there were no callers on the first two, Robert Nguyen called this time.

Ajez was flipping for his tournament life with the {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} versus Nguyen's {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}.

The {5-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop was good for Ajez, but the {5-Spades} turn looked dangerous. Finally, the board paired again on the {k-Diamonds} river and Ajez was counterfeited, busting eighth.
